The scripture for today, October 17 (10/17), is Romans 10:17 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”

The King James version reads “Therefore, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”

Faith is not just a feeling or responding to what a friend tells us. It is not responding to a religious book or a website or to a spiritual movement. Faith is the result of hearing/reading the Word of Christ, the gospel ~ for yourself ~ all of it!

Faith is based on knowledge; zeal is not enough (Romans 10:1). Faith is based on considering the evidence; a feeling in one’s heart is not enough (Hebrews 11:1).

You who study the Bible for yourself are doing the right thing. Do not rely on anything but what you have read for yourself. All other religious people are going to be judged by God just like you are. When compared to God’s Word, their word is not important.

You are trying to please God, not people. You are worshiping God, not people. Rely only on what He says, and know for sure.
