So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
There are many reasons to read the Bible. Increasing our faith is a good reason. We can read about God’s faithfulness. We read predicted prophecy, and then we have the pleasure of reading the prophecy fulfilled. Whenever we read we give the Holy Spirit opportunity to teach us many things. And as we learn, our faith grows. Not because of what we have done. It grows when we listen, and then the Spirit increases our faith.
What happens when we neglect God’s Word? When we don’t read about God’s faithfulness and goodness, our faith falters. Our faith will weaken. The strength to make righteous decisions that glorify God, weakens. It doesn’t have to. Go read!
Prayer: Increase our faith. Increase our desire and love for your Word.
