Faith Cometh By Hearing

A deaf and dumb Lady said that the first time she went to church after

she was impressed with the truths of christianity, she saw over the

pulpit the words "Faith cometh by hearing," which caused her great

unhappiness; for, she thought, that as she had no hearing she could

never have faith. Shortly after, however, she saw this text in the

Bible, and observed that it was followed by "and hearing by the Word of

God," which gave her so much delight, as shewing her a way in which it

was possible for faith to come even to her, that she clasped the Bible

to her heart.
