Many people mistake two things for saving faith:
Saving faith is not mere
head knowledge, like believing certain historical facts. The Bible says that the devil believes there is one God,
so believing that there is one God is not saving faith.
Saving faith is also not mere
temporal faith, that is, trusting God for temporary crises such as financial, family, or physical needs.
Now these are good, and you should trust Christ for these, but they are not saving faith!
Saving faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. It means resting upon Christ alone and what He has done at the cross of calvary rather than in what you or I have done to get us into Heaven.
“. . . Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved . . .” (Acts 16:31).
The question that God is asking you now is would you like to receive the gift of eternal life?
