Faith is not a blind thing; for faith begins with knowledge. It is not a speculative thing, for faith believes facts of which it is sure. It is not an unpractical, dreamy thing; for faith trusts, and stakes its destiny upon the truth of revelation. . . . Faith . . . is the eye which looks. . . . Faith is the hand which grasps. . . . Faith is the mouth which feeds upon Christ.
Charles Spurgeon, Boice, 1991, p. 1:108
