REGENERATION is inseparable from its effects and one of the effects is faith. Without regeneration it is morally and spiritually impossible for a person to believe in Christ, but when a person is regenerated it is morally and spiritually impossible for that person not to believe. Jesus said, “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me” (John 6:37), and he was referring in this case surely to the giving of the Father in the efficacious drawing of the Father mentioned in the same context (John 6:44, 65). Regeneration is the renewing of the heart and mind, and the renewed heart and mind must act according to their nature.
This month's Article of the Month is rather brief, which no doubt will make some happy
, but it is packed with lots of important truths concerning repentance and faith. These two things are prerequisites to one being united to Christ, reconciled to God and being declared justified.
What exactly is faith; what is its nature? Where does faith originate? What is repentance? Why is it necessary? These questions and more are clearly described and set in their proper place.
