Galatians 5:6  “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.”

Faith working through love.

That phrase has been piercing my heart for several days now. I cannot predict the total impact it will have on me, but I can share with you what it means right now.

  • God is love – 1 John 4:7-8
  • God demonstrated His love for us when while we were in our sin Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
  • From His love, God gave us the gift of faith. Ephesians 2:8-9
  • By faith we are delivered from sin. Colossians 1:13

Now, here’s where I am at today. My hands are actually shaking as I type because my spirit is leaping for joy.

Faith works because of God’s love.

Faith works to increase my love for God.

Faith works to increase my expression of God’s love to others.

Since faith is given in love, then love will be the expression of faith.

Today, I have the opportunity to show that faith works by how I love others.

So do you.
