Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of CHRIST. (📖 Rom. 10:17 📖)
Faith comes from hearing the message. You cannot believe in CHRIST until you have had the good news of HIS love explained to you.
You also cannot believe unless the HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF has worked in your heart.
However, once you believe, once you have invited JESUS into your heart, you have a serious responsibility, not only to live your faith, but also to pass it on to others.
Faith must be shared. GOD wants HIS good news proclaimed in the world. JESUS’ last message to HIS disciples was, in fact:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations … teach them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19~20).
What are you doing with the faith in your heart? What are you doing with GOD’S good news? Do your colleagues know you are a Christian, or have some of them never even heard the message of GOD’S mercy?
Do you have family devotions?
Do you teach your children from the Bible and do you discuss the things of the LORD?
When you are with your friends, do you share with one another what GOD means to you?
If you have not yet shared your faith with those around you, it is not yet too late. Tell someone close to you today what it means to you to believe in GOD.
🙏🏻 HOLY SPIRIT, thank YOU for giving me faith in my heart. Thank YOU that I may believe in JESUS and know that I have eternal life. Help me to share my faith with others, so that they can also believe in YOU, LORD JESUS. Amen.
