I. HEAR WHAT GOD SAYS, 1 Sam. 3:10; Mark 12:37 (Rom. 10:17).

A. Because What God Says is Right, Luke 8:8 (Ps. 19:8).
1. Be careful how you hear, Luke 8:18.
2. Careful what you hear, Mark 4:23-24.
3. Be confident (resolved) that whatever God says it right.
B. Because Listening to God Gives Us Under­standing, John 8:43.
1. Man’s wisdom is contingent, condi­tional, and contradictory.
2. God’s wisdom is clear, con­cise, and capable of saving us, 1 Cor. 1:25.
C. How God Speaks to Us: In the Gospel of His Son, Heb. 1:1-2; John 12:48; 1 Pet. 1:22-25.
1. Word of the cross (1 Cor. 1:18-21).
2. Understanding the truth is available to us if we will LISTEN to God, Eph. 3:3-4.

II. BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAYS, Acts 8:35-37.

A. Faith to Trust God’s Word, Mark 5:22-24, 35-36 (41-42).
1. Jairus told to trust Jesus rather than men (daughter raised).
2. Will we trust God’s word on every subject to bring us God’s blessings?

2. He will reward believers, Heb. 11:6.

III. OBEY WHAT GOD SAYS, Matt. 4:4.

A. Faith Saves When Faith Obeys.

2. Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abra­ham…, Heb. 11:4ff.
3. Faith without loving obedience is like car without gasoline: It goes nowhere, cf. Gal. 5:6-7.

IV. TAKE THESE STEPS AND YOU WILL BE WALKING BY FAITH. (Eph. 2:10 → 4:1, 17; 5:2, 10, 15; 1 John 1:6-7)
