Paul then asks rhetorical questions; “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching” (10:14)? He asked the questions in reverse order to which they happen in a person who calls and is saved. John Piper says, “These are extremely important words relating to the necessity of the missionary enterprise.”* They are right in line with Jesus’ command to the disciples and us, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
What is your role in fulfilling this command so that someone can hear, believe, and call on the Lord and be saved?
