2. By this faith, a Christian[1] believes to be true whatever is revealed in the Word due to the authority of God Himself speaking in it.a He acts in an appropriate manner to what each particular passage in the Word contains: yielding obedience to the commands,b trembling at the threatenings,c and embracing the promises of God for this life and that which is to come.d But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and trusting in Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace.e
