Three introductory observations about our faith: 1. The Bible speaks of two different aspects of a Christianʼs faith: “Saving” faith and “Continuing” faith. 2. Both are the product of Godʼs grace at work in the believerʼs heart. 3. The Protestant Reformers distinguished three elements of saving and continuing faith: Knowledge, Assent, Trust. The two characteristics of the centurionʼs faith that caused Jesus to “marvel” are: a humble faith, a bold faith. Conclusion: The kind of faith that causes God to marvel—and thus the kind of faith Christians should seek from the Lord—is humbly bold and boldly humble.
