“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” wrote Paul (Romans 10:17). Since we are saved by grace alone through faith alone, it is everlastingly essential that we pay attention to God’s word, to the message of Christ. Failure to hear and to heed God’s word has damning implications. In fact, if we do not heed God’s word, we have not truly heard God’s word. On the other hand, if we faithfully hear and heed God’s word, then the implications are everlastingly blessed. Jesus makes this very clear in the parables in Mark 4.
