Source of Faith

Where does faith come from?

From God and His Word!

Romans 10:17 (ESV) So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Romans 12:3 (ESV) For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
9  not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

May our cry be like this father’s.

Mark 9:24 (ESV) Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”

  1. Great verses! I like the way Monergism.com sums it up:

    “We deny that grace is a reward for our faith …rather, it is the cause of faith. Jesus provides everything we need for salvation, including a new heart to believe.”

    Mark,

    Thanks for sharing that quote. I don’t know why it is such a hard concept to grasp that Jesus did it ALL and we did nothing not even providing the faith. I think our independent self-sufficient spirit gets in the way of the truth.
