Faith and Love
When we walk in love, we demonstrate the nature of God to others.
When we walk in faith, we demonstrate His will. The kind of faith that pleases God works by love! (Gal. 5:6)
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” —John 3:16
God’s love was given to the world through Jesus so men could have faith in Him. Love gives, and love forgives. When we walk in love, we also give and forgive. The love of God motivates us to reach the world so others can believe and receive that love.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” —I John 5:4
Faith is the currency of heaven.
Faith overcomes the corruption of the world so His love can be demonstrated to the lost. It is His divine method for reaching the world with His love and establishing His will. Love wants to heal. Faith makes that happen. Love wants to deliver. Faith brings deliverance. Love wants to save. Faith receives salvation.
“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us….” —Ephesians 5:1-2
Those with true faith are those who know the love of God.
If your faith seems weak, check your revelation of God’s love for you and for the world.
