FAITH: MAN’S RESPONSE TO CHRIST
Jesus did all the work necessary to save man from his sins. However, before we can experience the benefits that God has provided through Christ’s death on the cross, God requires that we believe (trust) in Jesus, and what He has accomplished through His death.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed on Christ Jesus that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Galatians 2:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him will not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
(In fact, there are over 160 verses in the New Testament which declare that the only condition for receiving eternal life is faith in Jesus Christ. Among them are John 1:7, 1:12, 3:18, 5:24, 6:29, etc.)
