Faith, Hope, and Love

“…constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father” (1 Thessalonians 1:3)

            Faith, hope, and love – Thessalonians connects action words with all three of these great pillars of Christianity.

We know our faith by our actions and the fruit they bear.  What deeds have you done for the kingdom?

Love is seen in how much we are willing to agonize for relationships.  What will you sacrifice for your neighbor?  How many tears will you cry to pursue reconciliation and peace with God and man?

Hope is shown in our willingness to wait for the Day of the Lord.  God is sovereign – will you wait for His timing with steadfast endurance?

Faith works, love toils, and hope waits.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
