Day 10—Saturday, February 24

Romans 10:14-17

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Taste and See, Hear and Proclaim, how often do we fail to do this? Faith and belief are such interesting things. When I read this scripture, I was aware that it is still speaking to us, in this time and place, not just to the Israelites. We are expected to believe in this Christ that we have never actually heard, but through the hearing of the word we come to believe. When we come to the many services at RCPC we come with open hearts and minds to hear what the Word wants and needs us to hear.

Every day we are expected to live a life filled with the Spirit and to live our lives close to life that Christ lived. We allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us through our pastors, church staff, choir, and bible study groups. With all of the chaos in the world, isn’t amazing that we can draw hope from all who bring the “good news” to us?

God, how blessed we are to believe without seeing, but through hearing your word spoken into our hearts. Bless those who continue to bring your word to our hearts. Amen
