Episode 11.2: Faith and Saving Graces


The definition here for “faith” seems active, can you explain that? How do predestination and effectual calling flow into faith if it is alone considered the instrument of justification? What does “instrument” mean? What is the importance of the word “ever” in this paragraph? What are all the other saving graces? Is dead faith really faith? What does “worketh by love” mean? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 11.2:

Faith, thus receiving and resting on Christ and His righteousness, is the alone instrument of justification: yet is it not alone in the person justified, but is ever accompanied with all other saving graces, and is no dead faith, but works by love.
