Faith in a Specific Promise

Pastor Curtis Bakerby Curtis Baker

When it comes to understanding just how it is that we are “saved by faith,” there is often a lot of confusion as to how that works.  Because our understanding of faith as “belief” has been somewhat isolated from works, it can be easy to be puzzled about the implications of justification by faith.  Does this simply mean we only have to believe in God, or that Jesus is the Son of God?  Is belief enough?  If so, that seems to set a relatively low standard of getting into heaven, even if we all acknowledge that no one deserves to go to heaven based on their own merit.  Could not a person claim to believe in Jesus as the Son of God as a way of hedging his bet, while he maintains a style of life that is clearly contrary to God’s wishes?  How are we to sort all of this out?
