True faith


--Thomas Watson, "The Lord's Prayer"

True faith is joined with holiness. As a little
musk sweetens, so a little faith purifies. Though
faith does but touch Christ--it fetches a healing
virtue from Him. Justifying faith does that in a
spiritual sense, which miraculous faith does--it
removes the mountains of sin, and casts them
into the sea of Christ's blood!

True faith is prolific. It brings forth fruit; it has
Rachel's beauty--and Leah's fruitfulness. Faith is
full of good works. It believes as if it did not work
--and it works as if it did not believe. Faith is the
spouse-like grace which marries Christ; and good
works are the children which it bears!
