ABC’S of the Word – F

Pam explains the purpose of ABC’s of the Word:
"God gave me this idea to start
stirring up the Word in each of us by going through the alphabet, one letter each Thursday. I just think it would be cool to see how many different scriptures are listed each week. Even if it doesn't start with the letter of the week, make it predominately about that word that corresponds with the letter of the week. Other than following along with each week's letter there are no rules. Join in when you can and be blessed. Don't worry about missing a week or joining at letter I---whatever, I will willingly add anyone's blog at any time. Let's be encouraged by His Truth!’

This week’s letter is F

“So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:17 KJV

Here are two other Bible versions which enhance the meaning of the text:

“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).

Amplified Bible

“So faith comes from hearing the message.

And the message that is heard is the word of Christ.”

New International Readers Version

Our faith is founded on the words of Christ…on the message He gave us that God is with us and He is on our side and wants us all to live with Him. Read these two examples of Jesus words on the subject…

“For the Father himself loveth you,

because ye have loved me,

and have believed that I came out from God.”
John 16:27

“For God so loved the world,

that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,

but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16.

Our faith has such such wonderful messages as its foundation. Let us continue to grow in faith as we make Christ first in our lives.
