Theological Fragments: The Encounter with Faith

“We humans want to make things by ourselves, including faith, or at least we want to assure ourselves of faith. For Luther, however, faith is solely the work of God. Faith encounters us by coming to us. We experience it in that we suffer it.”

–Oswald Bayer, Living by Faith: Justification and Sanctification, 20
