Ever think about this — where does your faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior originate? Does this saving faith emerge from your dead-in-sin heart? Or does your heart need a quickening work? Do your black-as-the-depths-of-space heart and mind and soul need a work from the outside in — a work of God Himself?
My faith is not a thing I am able to generate out of the nothingness that was in me. My belief is a gift from God the Holy Spirit, given to me before I was even a thought in my parents’ lives, before Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, before the foundation of the world itself.
I am a work of God.
