Gill and Duty Faith


" process of time the Jews indeed put away the word of God from them, and showed themselves unworthy of it, and even of everlasting life; when the apostles, as they were ordered, turned to the Gentiles, and they gladly received it, Ac 28:28 and it is both the duty and privilege of all, who have the opportunity of hearing it, to hear it; "For faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God", Ro 10:17 and this is what is to be treated of..."

(A Body of Doctrinal & Practical Divinity By John Gill. Practical Divinity, Book 3, Chapter 4: Of Public Hearing the Word)
