Faith is not lazy; it inclines not the soul to sleep, but work; it sends the creature not to bed, there to snort away his time in ease and sloth, but into the field. The night of ignorance and unbelief, that was the creature’s sleeping time; but, when the Sun of righteousness ariseth, and it is day in the soul, then the creature riseth and goeth forth to his labour. The first words that break out faith’s lips, are those of Saul in his hour of conversion: “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” (Acts 9:6 KJV)

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


With true faith comes obedience and the desire to be not only a consumer in the body of Christ but a contributor and a servant. Without obedience, our belief is no better than the devil’s. Satan has more knowledge and awareness of the truth of Scripture than we do.

You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! (James 2:19)

Obedience is what sets apart true faith in the promises of Christ.
