“When Salvation Begins”

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
[Romans 10:17]

Our salvation begins, not with any work of ours, but with the hearing of the Word of life. Hence also the Law precedes, to humble, to reveal sin, and to teach that we can do nothing by our own strength. Through the hearing of the Word the Holy Spirit is given; by faith He purifies the heart. Romans 10:17 says – “faith comes from what is heard.” Now there is no more fear or slavish flight from the face of the wrath of God; there is childlike access to God through grace, in which we stand and boast. [Romans 5:2-3]
