Faith : how to have faith

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.( Romans 10:17)

Since we have seen the benefits of having faith, it’s time for us to know how to obtain faith

By Receiving the Word of God in your heart.

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.( Romans 10:17)

Ladies and gentlemen, I intentionally chose to write receiving the Word instead of hearing because there are many things which you have heard but you were not listening to. Sometime ago I wrote about the type of Christians/people that are in church. The first type I shared about are the church-goers, these are people who hear the Gospel but don’t listen to it hence they don’t understand it, And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up ( Matthew 13:4), When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.( Matthew 13:19).

Thanks to technology hearing the Word doesn’t just mean listening to your pastor and reading the Word, listening to audio messages and watching sermons, listening to testimonies, reading a Christian book or blog:-) falls under hearing the Word but they will only be useful to you if you are paying attention and listening to it, not just hearing it.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success(Joshua 1:8)

The evidence of paying attention and listening to the Word is meditation. When you listen to the Word you’ll find yourself thinking about it regularly and once you start to meditate on it that’s when the Word begins to yield faith.
