A living faith means an increase in vigor, a confiding trust , by which the soul becomes a conquering power.E.G White Desire of Ages p 347. This is from the story of the lady who touched Jesus garment and stopped bleeding after being ill and isolated for many years. Her culture wouldn’t allow women who were bleeding to mix with society.
The only faith that will benefit us is that which embraces Him as a personal Saviour; which appropriate His merits to ourselves. Many hold faith as an opinion. Saving faith is a transaction by which those who receive Christ join themselves in covenant relationship with God. Genuine faith is life.E.G White Desire of Ages pg 347 This is from the same story as above.
