The Shield of Faith

Speaker:
Passage: Ephesians 6:13-16
Service Type:


Faith is a shield as it connects us to Christ, our supreme advocate.
I. What is Faith and what does it do?
II. Faith in what or who?
III. How might your faith be built?

WCF 14- 1 The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word: by which also, and by the administration of the sac-raments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened.

WCF 14- 2 By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatso-ever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God Himself speaking therein; and acts differently upon that which each par-ticular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, trembling at the threatenings, and embracing the promises of God for this life and that which is to come. But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and rest-ing upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace.

WCF 14- 3 This faith is different in degrees, weak or strong; may be often and many ways assailed and weakened, but gets the victory; growing up in many to the attainment of a full assurance through Christ, who is both the author and finisher of our faith.
