Saved by Faith

By Max Lucado

“The important thing is faith—the kind of faith that works through love.”  Galatians 5:6

Symbols are important. Some of them, like communion and baptism, illustrate the cross of Christ. They symbolize salvation . . . but they do not impart salvation.

Putting your trust in a symbol is like claiming to be a sailor because you have a tattoo . . .

Our God . . . saves us, not because we trust in a symbol, but because we trust in a Savior.
