Romans 10:17 tells us, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (NKJV) But what if you’ve never had the opportunity to hear? This is a question asked daily by Christians around the world – and one of the many ways that God is answering is through the ministry of Faith Comes By Hearing.
For over forty years, these dedicated missionaries and their partners have been providing audio Scriptures to people around the world – overcoming the barriers of literacy through the spoken word. Today, thanks to the work of over 60 teams of national workers, the Bible has been dramatized and made available to over 500 different language groups. This unique way of presenting the Gospel allows those in oral cultures to more fully enter into the story of the Bible, committing its words to memory as the Holy Spirit works within their hearts. And you can play a part!
Visit their website and view the video outlining their work and download an audio copy of the Bible in the language of your choice or subscribe to a Bible podcast. Join the “You’ve Got the Time” initiative where you can commit to listen to the Scriptures for 30 minutes a day – the entire New Testament in 40 days – and challenge your friends to share the endeavor with you.
Whatever you do, commit to make a difference today – because “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God!”
