Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. - Romans 10:17
Today's verse is about action. The surrounding verses describe that Jews and Gentiles alike reserve the love of God when they submit and receive salvation, but it goes on to describe that one cannot do this unless someone takes the time to reach out to that person, because how can someone call on the Lord if they do not believe in the Lord? Let me put it this way. If you knew someone was running toward a cliff and knew they could not see that cliff, wouldn't you feel compelled to tell them before they reached the edge? You may not be able to control ultimately what a person chooses to follow in their religious and spiritual life, but at least you did your part by taking the time to discuss what has brought you peace and happiness. Life is full of opportunities to bring comfort and the gift of faith to others who need it and allow the Lord to do His beautiful work.
