Marco Rubio recently captured attention for delivering what CBN News’ David Brody called “a stirring and moving explanation of the gospel” during a closed-door meeting with pastors, but a new campaign ad is likely to further pique the interest and attention of the faithful.
That ad, simply titled, “Faith,” features Rubio discussing mankind’s relationship with God, “the free gift of salvation” through Jesus Christ and other explicitly biblical themes that serve as the core of the Christian faith.
“Our goal is eternity, the ability to live alongside our creator and for all time, to accept the free gift of salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ. The struggle on a daily basis as a Christian is to remind ourselves of this,” Rubio proclaims in the ad. “The purpose of our life is to cooperate with God’s plan, to those who much has been given much is expected and we will be asked to account for that.”
He continues, “Were your treasures stored up on earth or in heaven and to me I try to allow that to influence me in everything that I do.”

The “Faith” spot is scheduled to air in Iowa this weekend, and is sure to capture the attention of evangelicals and other Christians in the state.
As TheBlaze previously reported, Rubio captured attention in November for comments that he made during a closed meeting with pastors, as he delivered an extended explanation of the Christian gospel.
“As far my relationship with Jesus Christ, the best way I’ve been able to describe it to people that are not believers is God became a man, came down to earth and died for our sins,” the GOP presidential candidate said. “He provided the ultimate sacrifice, because — up to that point — we lived under the law and the law meant that we had to sacrifice an unblemished lamb to cover our sins, not erase them.”
Rubio, who was responding to a pastor’s request that he share his personal “experience with the Lord,” went on to provide in-depth details of his personal theology, explaining that he believes that God’s son was the “ultimate sacrifice” — one that completely erased the sins of humanity.
“He’s a God that understands us. He has felt everything we’ve ever felt,” the Florida senator told the audience of pastors. “He has wept. He wept in pain because a friend that He loved died. He felt compassion for people. He probably had the flu or the cold. He felt pain in his flesh not just on his crucifixion but multiple times throughout His life. He was a human being in every way and yet He was free of sin.”
