Chapter 4. Bring About the Obedience of Faith

Faith as the Human Response to God’s Revelation (CCC, nos. 142-196)


God’s revelation of love in Christ Jesus – in the power of the Holy Spirit – for our salvation, offers the possibility of a human response. Faith is the human response to God, who reveals. For Christians, faith is a free response of assent to the revelation of God, revealed in the Trinity of persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Christian life is a relationship that begins with God’s revelation in Christ Jesus and our response in faith to that revelation. Faith is a concrete gift from the Holy Spirit, who plants the seed of faith within us, nourishes and strengthens our faith and brings us to perfection in it.
