To bring faith alive and keep faith vibrant hearing is a necessity.

How then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?...Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of about Christ.
                                                   --Romans 10:14,17 TNIV

Oh, it's not a matter of hearing impairment, as in a person being deaf. It IS a lack of connecting with the message of God's Word in Jesus Christ. To fail to hear, through the ears, through the mind, through the heart, and the message of hope, of new life withers. No, it's hearing that the is the amazing conduit that the God of the universe uses to bring to faith, and to nurture faith.

All the more reason then, to help people "hear" and all the more reason for us to stay immersed in a routine "hearing" of God's Word.
