Saving faith is trusting God for the forgiveness we need through Jesus, which leads to trusting all his other promises as well. Faith is not just knowing that Jesus died on the cross on a day long ago, but to trust that he died on the cross for me!
the Reformation 500 years ago was about returning to what God says to us in his Word. So, we turn to Jesus in the familiar words of John’s gospel, the 8th chapter, verse 31. Jesus says, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
