The power of faith.

The Church of Christ is founded upon faith as upon a rock which does not shake beneath it.

By faith the saints conquered kingdoms, performed righteous deeds, closed the mouths of lions,

quenched the power of fire, escaped the sharp sword, were strengthened in infirmity (Heb.

11:33-38). Being inspired by faith, Christians went to torture and death with joy. Faith is a rock,

but a rock that is impalpable, free of heaviness and weight, that draws one upward and not

downward.

“He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture bath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living

water,said the Lord (John 7:38); and the preaching of the Apostles, a preaching in the

power of the word, in the power of the Spirit, in the power of signs and wonders, was a living

testimony of the truth of the words of the Lord. Such is the mystery of living Christian faith.
