By a natural figure of speech, faith is often magnified into something great; whereas it is really nothing but our consent to be saved by another: its supposed magnitude is derived from the greatness of the object which it grasps, the excellence of the righteousness which it accepts.  Its preciousness is not its own, but the preciousness of Him to whom it links us.
~H. Bonar, The Everlasting Righteousness, p.109
