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?
  • Enara on Romans 10:17
    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!

    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.
