Read: Romans 10:15b-21 and Psalm 119:33-40
St. Paul writes that although God has sent people out to preach, not everyone has listened. Faith and obedience come through listening to God, and God speaks through the Word. Remember that John 1:1-5, 14 shows us that the Word is Jesus, the Son of God. Christ speaks to us, through the Bible and through other means, and if we hear and listen we can then apply what we’ve heard, which is the essence of faith.
Do you hear? Do you listen to what you hear? Do you kid yourself into thinking all is well when it isn’t? Are you open to growing as Christ reveals areas of growth to you? Take a moment to pray about this. Ask God to help you to grow into a mature disciple. Write your own prayer.
