Faith Part 4

Faith Series
How do you get Faith and where does it come from?
Before you believe, or trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ's Word is preached, there's nothing to listen to.
Romans 10:17 The Message Bible
Another translation says this:
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 Amplified Bible
Faith, saving faith, is to be taught.
So we humans don't manufacture Faith it comes from the word of GOD.
Faith is trusting GOD--believing that He loves us and knows best what is for our good. Thus, instead of our own,it leads us to choose GOD's way.
In place of our ignorance, it accepts Christ's wisdom; in place of our weakness, Christ's strength; in place of our sinfulness, Christ's righteousness.
Our lives, ourselves, belong to Christ; faith acknowledges GOD's ownership and accepts his blessings.
Truth, uprightness, purity, have been pointed out as secrets of life's success.
It is faith that puts us in possession of these principles.
