    Childlike faith is found in one of the that trusts God , is dependent on Him and open to the gospel. Knowing salvation comes from God alone and not our own good, we grow in our faith as we learn to let go and trust God in all things.

    I often find myself in the trap of looking at my own goodness or lack thereof. I see the ways I fail and wonder how He could love me, or I start to think I’m doing pretty well. Neither of these are in line with Scripture which never fails to remind me that my salvation is dependent on Christ’s work and not my own goodness. My so-called goodness fluctuates by the hour or even minute, but He remains constant and true. He is my sure and steady Anchor.
