So Then Faith Cometh by Hearing,and Hearing by the Word of God.
What is Faith?
The dictionary says that faith is complete trust and confidence in someone or something. The Bible says that Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is the essential ingredient to a relationship with God.
Where does Faith come from?
Faith does not come from ourselves, or others, faith is a gift from God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 tells us, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
How do I get more Faith?
In Romans 10:17 we are reminded that we must go to the Word of God if we desire to see our faith increase. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”
Do I need Faith?
The Scriptures tell us that without Faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
