Where Does Faith Come From?

Romans 10:16 & 17 says, “But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”

Faith begins with a choice to believe.  It is fed by the Word penetrating your eyes, ears and making its way into the center of your being. It grows with your experience with God. In the same way that you get to know your parents as you grow up in their presence, spending time in God’s Word and in prayer with Him grows your faith.

According to Romans 10:9, “…if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
