But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching,
But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following.
Creating the praise of the lips.
Peace, peace to him who is far and to him who is near,”
Says the Lord, “and I will heal him.”
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.”
Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you,
They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word which was preached to you.
So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
