“So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).” Romans 10:17 AMP
Faith can’t grow without the Word of God. It can’t even start. The Word of God activates and strengthens faith. Faith in the unseen; faith that reaches beyond our five senses.
It is God’s Word that gives us clarity and enhances our accountability for how we live. It teaches us how to stretch beyond what we see, hear, touch, taste and smell. It teaches us to stretch into a different way of life. God’s Word is the authority on how to live in the spirit. It is the sanctified truth. His Holy Spirit brings us that truth in a very real and personal way.
His Word warns us against living in fantasy, loving lies and living in a dream. It warns us against living and walking in the darkness of this world. It gives us instruction and a filter to keep us on a righteous path.
Lord give us ears to hear Your Word and give us the boldness to speak it so others can hear it too.
