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.
1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”
