Where Does Faith Come From?

Bible Verses

Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God through the faith of Jesus Christ to all those who believe... Heb 12:2 Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith...

Words of Ministry

We believe in Jesus Christ by His faith, for we have no faith of our own. Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith. The more we look at ourselves and examine ourselves, the faster our faith disappears. Faith is not our invention; it can never be initiated by us. It is impossible for us to generate faith. If you look at yourself, you will never find faith, but if you forget about yourself and say, "O Lord Jesus, I love You," faith will immediately rise up within you. This faith is the faith of Jesus, or we may say it is Jesus believing within us. Thus, the phrase "through faith of Jesus Christ" means believing in Jesus Christ by His faith. The righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law by our believing in Jesus Christ by His faith. We believe in Christ by His faith, not by our own. Christ is our faith. Never say that you cannot believe, for you can believe if you want to. Do not try to believe by yourself, because the more you try the less faith you have. Simply say, "O Lord Jesus, I love You. Lord Jesus, You are so good." If you do this, you will have faith immediately. We believe in Jesus Christ by His faith, and out of this faith and to this faith the righteousness of God is revealed to all who believe.
