HAVE YOU HEARD?
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and
hearing by the word of God."
Many years ago when I lived in Texas and was physically able to do so, I
would kneel beside my bed and read my Bible out loud. Those times
are so precious to me. That was when I first started to step out in
faith even when I was not sure about a situation.
When we go to church, the pastor preaches out loud. Sometimes a
pastor will read a passage in the Bible and then preach from that passage.
If the pastor just read the Bible and never said anything about it, then
we would not hear how much Jesus Loves us.
Try reading your Bible out loud while you are having your devotions and
watch your faith increase. There is a special closeness with Jesus
when you read His Word out loud.
How is your faith today? Is it weak and shaky? Are you in right
standing with Jesus? Do you know without a doubt that if Jesus were
to return today that you would be ready to meet Him? Do you have any
unconfessed sin in your life? I urge you to be ready to meet the
Master, as we donít know when He is coming.
