I have the MacArthur Bible Commentary in hardcover. I've been looking for a reference in there that I cannot find that I had quoted for my book I'm finishing up. First book and I was silly enough not to write down my references as I quoted them. That being said, if anyone has it on e-Sword or Logos or anything, could you search and look up to see where the following is in it for me? I will forever be grateful:
Mental - the mind understands the gospel and the truth about Christ (Romans 10:14-17).
Emotional - one embraces the truth of those facts with sorrow over sin and joy over God's mercy and grace (Romans 6:17, 15:13).
Volitional - the sinner submits his will to Christ and trusts in Him alone as the only hope of salvation.
In addition, I had one more but I'm not sure if I got this quote from a sermon of the commentary. But if you could look it up anyway, would greatly appreciate it:
To trust, rely on, or have faith in. When used of salvation, this word usually occurs in the present tense ("is believing") which stresses that faith is not simply a one time event, but an ongoing condition.
Thanks you so much and Lord bless you.
