    The more the constitution of faith is understood, the more it will be realized that it is the sole provision by which the blessed Holy Spirit works in the believer “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Pet 1:3), which are all the concerns of the Father and the Son.

    “Faith in Christ is not of a man's self, nor have all men it (2 Thess 3:2); it is a gift of God, the operation of His power (Col 2:12), and the work of His Spirit, whence He is styled the Spirit of faith (2 Cor 4:13); and which therefore must have a place among His fruits (Gal 5:22); and which lies and shows itself in believing in Christ for salvation, in embracing the doctrines of the Gospel, and making a profession of them, which is called the profession of faith (Heb 10:23); all which, when right, comes from the Spirit of God.” -John Gill
