Faith that sees Christ

July 1995 | by Horatius Bonar

With a weak faith and fearful heart, many a sinner stands before the Lord. It is not the strength of our faith, but the perfection of Christ’s sacrifice that saves. No feebleness of faith, no dimness of eye, no trembling of hand can change the efficacy of his blood. The strength of our faith can add nothing to it, nor can the weakness of faith take anything from him. Faith (weak or strong) still reads the promise, ‘The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin.’ If at times my eye is so dim that I cannot read these words, through blinding tears or bewildering trials, faith rests itself on the certain knowledge of the fact that ‘the promise is there’; and the blood of Christ remains in all its power and suitableness upon the altar, unchanged and uneffaced. God says that the believer is justified. What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
