The Act of Coming to Christ

“Coming to Christ is coming to Him with the heart by simple faith. Believing on Christ is coming to Him, and coming to Christ is believing on Him. It is the act of the soul which takes place when a man, feeling his own sins, and despairing of all other hope, commits himself to Christ for salvation, ventures on Him, trust Him, and casts himself wholly on Him.”
~ J.C. Ryle

  1. There is nothing simple about faith, it is a gift from God, who loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for us, something we didn't deserve, But God, in His mercy & grace loves His creation & gave us His faith.
