So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name bear witness about me, but you do not believe because you are not among my sheep. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. . .”
And the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, “The LORD is with you, O mighty man of valor.”
