Let's get down to where the rubber meets the road and perhaps do some repenting in our own hearts about the way we have made salvation something other than a grace gift when He gives that faith to trust Christ as Savior. Manâ€™s flesh, manâ€™s lower fallen nature desires desperately to lower faith, that means to redefine faith so that he can say that it dwells within his fallen capacity.
Revealing Sermon! This message gets to the heart of the matter of True Salvation. It peels away all the layers of falseness that many churches are preaching and instead shows that Grace and Faith in Jesus Christ is our gift and we have nothing righteous in any work we think we must do. This sermon should be preached regularly but sadly is not, and most people are not truly "born again."
Amen! Amen! Brother Jeff, praise and thank God for calling and empowering you to preach the clear unvarnished truth of God's precious Word!
Was praying for God to speak unto my heart for assurance of salvation and I trust He's done that graciously through you.
The focus, as and always, is Christ from first to last. Salvation is of the Lord, and if for one instance I ever look to myself I'd have no hope.
It's the strength of the object of faith that saves, not the strength of faith!
Thanks so much, brother.

A Message that will help many! This is a great message that will help many! Pastor Noblit here shows that even the FAITH of the repentant sinner is God's covenant GIFT to those sinners who are "given to Christ" (John 6:37a; 17:2).
There is nothing more precious than the Gospel of God's SOVEREIGN GRACE in Christ the Lord. If you are saved, my reader, GIVE HIM ALL THE PRAISE! For "Salvation is of the LORD" (Jonah 2:9). Amen.
I really appreciate both this preacher and this message. May God bless it to an ever-increasing circle of needy souls. W. F.

Great Sermon! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT MESSAGE ABOUT SALVATION!!!!
Great Sermon! What a wonderful sermon!! I too am 62 years old and God through his grace call me from the dead and put me in Christ only 3 years ago. As a new christian, I am growing in grace and need sermons like this. I praise our Lord that He still provides servants on earth to rightly divide the truth and teach us.

Great Sermon! I an 62 years old and have many health problems that have set me to thinking about do I really know that I know. I listened to your sermon twice and I have some honest seeking questions. Why did Christ emphasize faith on the individual's part when healing someone? "Thy faith hath made thee whole." Also, (paraphrased) I haven't seen so great a faith... It seems Christ honored people's faith when he was on earth, did he first give them this faith?? Or is this distinguished from saving faith? Also, Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for rightousness. In short, it seems faith on the the individual's part is necessary to receive healing and rightousness. I have always been perplexed by this. Some years ago, I received unsolicited a booklet titled "How God Saved a Baptist Preacher" I have read it over and over and seem to be searching for something other than what I profess to have. Funny, I yearn for Christ's return to be caught up in the air, but I really am afraid to die.
