Faith Holds Its Life, Its All, Of Christ

Thomas Halyburton, The Great Concern of Salvation (Works, p. 168):

As the precious faith of God’s elect is at first planted in the soul by the blessed hand of him who is the Author of faith to all them that believe; so it receives all its increases from him. He nourishes it by influences from above; it derives all its growth from him. The gentle breezes of the Spirit, the north and south winds, breathing in the ordinances, quicken all the graces of the Spirit, and cause them to send forth a savoury and fragrant smell. Faith holds its life, its all, of Christ.
