How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.Romans 10:14–17
Hearing the Word of Christ
It’s hard to imagine that there are people out there who have never heard the gospel. We tend to think that they live in remote villages. While some do, there are many people who live in our country, city, and even community who have never heard the good news about Jesus. There are people who work with you and maybe even people who live with you who do not know Jesus the way you know Him. They will never know until Christians start accepting the call of God for the cause of Christ. Your loved ones will never know until you start saying yes to the call!
Faith will only come from hearing the word of God. Most of the time our silence comes from fear of being rejected. So what are you going to do today to accept the call and tell your loved ones about the greatest thing that has ever happened to you?
A Prayer to Remember
May I be your hands and feet. Give me courage to bring your Word to the nations. Amen.
