How Faith Comes


1


But without faith it is impossible to please


him: for he that cometh to God must believe


that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them


that diligently seek him.


—Hebrews 11:6


Notice particularly the first part of that verse, "But


without faith it is impossible to please him ...."


If God demands that we have faith when it is


impossible for us to have faith, then we have a right to


challenge His justice. But if He places within our hands the


means whereby faith can be produced, then the


responsibility rests with us as to whether or not we have


faith.


God has told us that without faith it is impossible to


please Him, but He has also told us how to obtain faith. He


has told us how faith comes.


ROMANS 10:17


17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by


the word of God.


If we don't have faith, it is not God's fault. To blame


God for our lack of faith is nothing but ignorance. God has


provided the way whereby everyone can have faith.


Faith for Salvation


Faith for salvation "cometh by hearing, and hearing by


the word of God."


The Apostle Paul said that we are saved by faith. "For


by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of


9 10 Exceedingly Growing Faith


yourselves: it is the gift of God" (Eph. 2:8).


But how do you get the faith to be saved? Let's read


more from this passage in Romans.


ROMANS 10:8-10,13,14,17


8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy


mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith,


which we preach;


9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord


Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath


raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.


10 For with the heart man believeth unto


righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made


unto salvation.


13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord


shall be saved.


14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have


not believed? and how shall they believe in him of


whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear


without a preacher?


17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by


the word of God.


We see here that faith for salvation comes by hearing


the Word of God. Now relate that with Acts 11:13,14, "And


he shewed us how he [Cornelius] had seen an angel in his


house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa,


and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; WHO SHALL


TELL THEE WORDS, whereby thou and all thy house


shall be saved."


Cornelius was a good man, but he was not saved. Jesus


said, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to


every creature" (Mark 16:15). As Cornelius had not as yet


heard this glorious Gospel, he was not saved.


God told Cornelius to send for Peter in order to learn
