The strength of one’s faith vs. faith in the strength of the One

“It isn’t the intensity of faith, at least not in Christianity. It’s not the intensity of faith that saves.  It’s the greatness of the One on whom it links itself, or, on whom it takes as its object. That is my faith is weak and awful, but it grasps a mighty Christ, a saving Christ, a one-sidely saving Christ. The emphasis is on the object grasped not on the strength of my hand.” – Rod Rosenbladt, Professor of Theology at Concordia University
