Devotion – June 5, 2015 – Faith Comes by Hearing

romans10_14How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
—Romans 10:14

Paul asks the obvious question.  How are people supposed to believe the Gospel if they have never heard it?  For “faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17).  What a wonderful day it was when you heard the message that Jesus died to save you and that just as He rose again, you too shall rise to eternal life with Him.  We have this wonderful message, this treasure, and we get to share that message with others so they, too, can hear and believe!  What a great privilege!

“As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!'” (Romans 10:15)

Who can you tell?

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending someone to tell me about Jesus and creating faith in me through the hearing of Your Word.  Thank you for all those you have sent to preach the Gospel throughout the world.  Help me to also be one who shares Your Word with others so they may hear.

Amen
