How does chapter 14 provide a transition in the flow of the confession? What is faith? Why add the adjective “saving,” is there another kind of faith? How is the Bible and the Holy Spirit involved in our faith? What would some people object to in this paragraph? How does preaching increase our faith? Is the confession accurate when it says faith is “ordinarily” wrought by the ministry of the Word? How do the sacraments strengthen our faith? How does prayer strengthen our faith? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 14.1:
The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened.
