The Word of Christ

The Word of Christ

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

(Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭17‬ (NASB)

He gives faith. He gives the word that creates faith. Faith comes from truly hearing (heeding) the Gospel, and the hearing itself comes from Christ.

God is ultimately in control of our hearing and heeding the Gospel. Therefore, He is the source of our faith and salvation.

We owe everything to God. I really don’t control anything.

If we truly hear the Gospel, God will give us faith.

We need God to give me even the most fundamental of spiritual things, even the ability to hear Him.

When we truly accept this truth, we become dependent on God for everything. We have real faith.
