Faith Comes by Hearing the Word.
God has told us that without faith it is impossible to please Him, but He has also told us how to get faith. If we don’t have faith, God is not to blame. To blame God for our lack of faith is nothing in the world but ignorance. If we act faith, we are to blame.
This is also true concerning faith for salvation. Faith for salvation also comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Paul said in Ephesians 2:8: For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. We know that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God, but how are we to get faith to get saved? Romans chapter 10 tells us.
Romans 10:8-10, 13, 14.
Verse 8-But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, The Word Of Faith, Which We Preach;
Verse 9-That if now shall confess with that mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Verse 10-For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation…
Verse 13-For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Verse 14-How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and How Shall They Believe In Him Of Whom They Have Not Heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Men are saved by hearing God’s Word, because the Scripture says,.faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). You cannot believe and have faith without hearing the Word.
