3 times faith

‘The faith OF Christ’ (the faithfulness of Christ to fulfill all the conditions of the covenant of redemption by His obedience unto death on the cross) is the ground of our salvation.

‘The faith of the Gospel’ (the Gospel, the body of truth that communicates the message of Christ) is the revelation of salvation.

‘Faith IN Christ’ (the gift of faith given by God by the Holy Spirit in the new birth) is the fruit of salvation and the means by which we lay hold of Christ.
