Hearing Faith

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.Romans‬ ‭10:17‬

I read some more recently about how modern churches tend to pick out a few scriptures and develop a message around them. But also how the foundation of Christianity full chapters of books would be read aloud in ministry to the people. I know I have heard many preachers skip over passages in a chapter for “time sake”. All Scriptures have a purpose. If faith comes from hearing the word of God it should be the primary focus of a message, not part that is skipped over for time sake.

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭‬‬

Faith comes by hearing not reading.

Lexicon :: Strong’s G189 – akoē. thing heard; a. instruction, namely oral; specifically, the preaching of the gospel,

God spoke into to creation (Genesis 1).

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;”. James‬ ‭1:19‬ ‭‬‬

Jesus repeatedly said “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.Matthew‬ ‭11:15‬ ,‭‭ Mark‬ ‭4:23‬, Mark‬ ‭7:16‬, Mark‬ ‭4:9‬, Luke‬ ‭14:35‬ ‭‬‬

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.Proverbs‬ ‭18:21‬ ‭‬‬

Even as I write this, I feel a slight conviction that I blog because that is red, and not heard. I have not been one who wants my face plastered on the screen. I felt it is God not me that should be seen. It is his words not mine that need to be heard. I prefer to write the vision and love it. Not speak it but maybe this is wrong

Prayer – Lord, I’m not sure where You were leading me, but I hear Your voice. I recognize it. Help me, to see clearly what You are asking of me. I don’t want to miss You. You also know I don’t want to step out on my own. Guide me, direct me in Your ways.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
