In the “life of faith” we do not merely look for the principle of dependence on God or confidence in Him. It signifies much more. It is a life of large and various energies. According to God, or Scripture, faith is that principle in the soul which not only trusts Him and believes Him, it is also that which apprehends His way, acts in concert with His principles and purposes, receives His promises, enjoys His favor, does His bidding, looks for His kingdom, in His strength gains victories, and by His light walks in light. Thus it is ever exhibiting a life according to Him, or formed by communion with Him.
