Faith Comes By Hearing

Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

When Kalu got to the university, he started attending a fellowship that believed in the baptism and power of the Holy Spirit. He saw people who just became born again prophesying and casting out devils, but he had been a believer for years and wasn't walking in the power of the Holy Spirit. This was because his faith was never stirred in that direction.

But as Kalu started being taught about spiritual gifts and power, he realized that he now found the ability and faith to walk in them. This faith came by hearing.

I have seen many Christians who abound in Christian virtue and character, but do not abound in the power of the Holy Spirit and Spiritual gifts. Many of them have been cheated by the enemy because of this. Yet there are other Christians who are still greatly lacking in Christian character and virtue, but no one can doubt the presence of the power of the Spirit in their lives. They are like many of the Corinthian Christians who were not lacking in any spiritual gift but were yet very carnal (see 1 Cor 1:7, 3:3). Such Christians have the faith and grace to walk in spiritual gifts because they have heard the word of God concerning that area.

Go into today knowing that you will have faith to walk in spiritual gifts and power when you are properly taught in that area. This applies to all other things available to us in Christ.

Also remember that not being a fruitful Christian is a big risk (see John 15:2, Matt 7:19). Your fruits include the fruit of the spirit, which is your Christian character.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you abound in Spiritual fruits and gifts. Amen.

—Abraham Damilola Arigi
