Faith Will Be of More Use to Us than Any Grace

Faith will be of more use to us than any grace; as an eye, though dim, was of more use to an Israelite than all the other members of his body, a strong arm, or a nimble foot. It was his eye looking on the brazen serpent that cured him. It is not knowledge, though angelic, not repentance, though we could shed rivers of tears, could justify us; only faith, whereby we look on Christ. “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6). “A Body of Divinity” pg. 218
