Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Yet faith comes from listening to this message of good news––the Good News about Christ.
The point is, Before you trust, you have to listen. But unless Christ's Word is preached, there's nothing to listen to.
So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
