If we want to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, we have a part to play. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. So, it is the word of God that gives us faith and only by hearing it through reading, studying and through his messengers, will we have the faith we need to be transformed.
