Quotes (915)

I know well the tendency there is, at a certain stage of anxious inquiry, to ask, “What is faith that I may do it?” It is a legalist’s work to satisfy that craving; but this is what is in the “inquiry-room.”

“Who is He that I may believe in Him?” was the question asked by one who approached the dawning of a day of salvation. Explanations of what faith is are but trifling with souls. How different is the Scripture way! The great aim there is to “set forth” the object, not to explain the act, of faith.

– John Kennedy

1819 – 1884
