Faith and Love are One

faith-bible-verse-3

Faith and Love are the same.  Having faith is having love for God.  Just as having love for a man is to respect him, having faith in God is loving him.  Why is that?  Having faith is telling him you believe in him.  Believing in him is a deep concept.  It means that we believe he is God of the universe.  It means that we believe he is supreme and can do anything and that he knows everything.  Having faith in who he is is like worship to him.  It is a sweet, pleasing aroma to him.  We are told that without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).  It is by faith that we are justified, and it is by faith that we are condemned.  It is our faith that saves us, by it we overcome.  It is our faith that was given to us, as it is written that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2).  Faith is how we come to understanding about God and Jesus.  Faith is how we find our way to him.  Faith is a gift.  To not have faith is to reject God.  To reject the gentle love for him that he had placed in our hearts is to deny his love as well.  Love for God is to have faith.  Faith without works is dead, we show what we really believe by the choices that we make.  We either accept God and Jesus, or we deny them both by Faith.  We cannot have love for God if we do not have faith.  Faith and Love are one.  Faith and Love never pass away.

Through life's challenges I have learned that Jesus really is the only one who can truly satisfy. Through his grace I have already achieved so much, and wish to include you all in my journey as I continue to press on towards the mark to which I was called. I hope that you can identify and share in my successes and even my failures. It is also my hope that you will see what a day in the life of a spirit filled believer looks like up close and personal. May you be blessed as I am blessed, and may you share in my anointed grace. God bless you as you read.
