<quote from Real Faith & Reason>
Speaking through Scripture, God tells us that faith is substance (reality) and that it’s absolute and certain proof that comes as a gift from God. This faith comes when He speaks, and Jesus Christ, the almighty and all-knowing Creator is the Author of this faith. Anyone who sincerely seeks truth will consider Christ by coming to Him in willing submission since all who seek Him find Him. And though our knowledge is partial, yet through persistent obedient submission to His will, we make progress. Those who follow Christ are becoming increasingly mature. The Holy Spirit is forming Christ within us, so we increasingly have His influence, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. The Holy Spirit is purifying us. Therefore, we’re increasingly able to discern between good (God’s leading) and evil (our own minds). As implied by this statement, maturity is having Christ formed within and dying to the fleshly nature.
