Wesley's Notes for Romans 10:17

10:17 Faith, indeed, ordinarily cometh by hearing; even by hearing the word of God.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:17

Ro 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing. Hence the need of preaching. If God by a miracle wrought faith in the heart, he could dispense with the preacher. But the divine arrangement is that it should result from hearing the word of God preached. For an example of the gospel plan, see Ac 18:8.

I 'm having trouble decerning and hearing God 's voice and it 's very frustrating. I definitely have heard Him but it 's so rare and few!!! Any suggestions?


Mercy's comment on 2015-04-15 05:36:53:

faith is very key in our relationship with God, for we can not please God without faith. faith comes from hearing God 's word continuously and not periodically or once in while. taking full dose of the word of God daily is essential for a growing faith.


Rexben's comment on 2015-02-27 01:57:55:

the word of God is not the bible,nor the scriptures. Christ is the word of God. John1:1. So faith comes by hearing and hearing Christ by His Spirit which He sents to us.


Geri's comment on 2015-02-21 09:55:26:

So then faith comes by hearing spiritual in the ear, and hearing spiritual, as having an understanding by revelation by the Word of God Word or Rhema translates to speaking His living Word into a believer


Tony's comment on 2015-02-19 02:23:02:

I may not know the scripture to bulid the bridge to God... However, i was saved, body to body and felt the sprite in me everyday since...... I use talk to the stars when i was a kid everynight and talk back to me... I lost them and they and i found me again... I was reborn again as Tony 'Danile ' Larter! Life gives you tests, you can choose left or you can choose right and choose the way EVERYTIME... I had to do it to gain my life back with no help but me... I will tell my story to millions of people one day - God speaks to me all the time and leads me to the path of Glory! Thankyou for all these lovely comments, God truely cares and loves you all like i do too. God bless you. Amen.


Enara's comment on 2015-01-21 01:51:49:

All scripture is profitable and I thank God that He has made it so simple off all to understand. When I 'm hearing the Word of God faith will come. When I keep reading it aloud to myself or in church it will increase. When my faith is tested I must continue to believe what God has said through His Word. My faith gets strong and stronger because of Christ. He is the author and finisher of our faith. Yes!


David's comment on 2015-01-13 21:46:18:

It does say hearing . Evermore reasons to be in the house of God when the doors are open. It is simply a privilege and honor to be in His house.


Demetrio's comment on 2014-12-10 01:58:53:

Let the words be written on your heart and the tablets be in your mind and heart. Live by these words.


Moses Njenga's comment on 2014-07-22 23:03:17:

Faith, substance of things hoped for comes by hearing GODS Words which is alive, powerful and dont forget HIS Words are SPIRIT.


Dharam's comment on 2014-07-22 08:01:27:

Thank God that he has provided a way for us to obtain faith. As we study and meditate on his Word we would grow and develop the measure of faith that God has given us when we became Christians Romans 12 3


MockingBird's comment on 2014-07-22 04:51:50:

God gives to every man the measure of faith. With the measure that we are given we are to add to. To grow We can only attain faith from God 's word any other source is non working We must read the word of God and be around preaching. Faith cometh by hearing the word of God. Faith can only please God.


Thamsanqa's comment on 2014-07-05 12:24:11:

Its. Totally clear from me that if I want grow my little faith I must spend more time hearing through the word of God and meditate it every time.


Taiwo Igie's comment on 2014-07-02 11:50:47:

Faith cometh by hearing the word of God. And it 's a creating ability from nothing and everyone has it but if you don 't live by it consciously it might seems you don 't have it. And when God say without faith no one can please God, this is indication of its necessity to everyone to live and act it consciously. Thanks.

Sipho Cindi's comment on 2013-10-25 12:08:50:

Once you've heard it gives you the reason believe and that belief means you have because the word of God creates whatever you believe will come to pass. Therefore faith is a currency for claiming whatever is yours.


Mawulikplim Mcfrancis's comment on 2013-10-22 10:18:29:

Please let us ask,when was faith mentioned of? Let look at Galatians 3: 23-26. Faith has come if_you confess and received Christ.

Faith is a spiritual investment made by ones whole heart to attain a divine goal. Having full assurance that a thing hope for will come to pass.
