Faith works by love. Faith does not work in response to legalistic expectations and religious demands. It cannot be effective when the focus is on the do’s and don’ts; or in what instead of whom. Faith is not in anything we can do. Faith is absolute trust in a person, Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
It’s because we know God loves us that we know He will never leave us, nor forsake us. We walk and stand by faith because of the love of God we believe in regardless of the circumstances. He loves us and gives us the faith that is needed. Only the Lord can love us enough to keep us. Without faith working by love, works are done by the flesh and not led by the Spirit of God. Things change, but Jesus doesn’t. Faith is activated by love. It’s when we know that God loved us and gave Himself for us that we believe.
When we need more faith, all we have to do is love on the Lord, and then fear is removed and the faith the Lord has given us is free to flow. As we love on the Lord, He lavishes us with His love and we can believe His promises. We love Him so that we can stand on those promises. When more faith is needed, love responds and receives, from glory to glory!
Galatians 5:6 “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.”
