Romans 10:17 says, “So then Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”
What’s the first step to salvation? Hearing. When we begin to rattle off the plan of salvation, we always begin with this. Because, as this verse says, faith comes by hearing. When we begin to hear the Word of God, our Faith begins to take hold. When we continue to hear the Word of God, our Faith continues to influence us. Not only is it the first step to salvation, it is a vital step to maintain our Faithfulness. In order to be faithful to God, we must bombard ourselves with His word. Because, that word is a light to our path as Christians (Psalm 119:105). It is our guide on our journey to eternal life. But, when we stop letting that word guide us, then it’s easy to stray away from that path, isn’t it? Today, don’t stop at the first step. Let the word of God continue to dwell within your heart and guide your life.
