Faith and Love Intimately Connected: What does it mean to love Jesus?

Everything about the Christian life is based on faith. You love by faith just as you received Christ by faith, just as you are filled with the Holy Spirit by faith, and just as you walk by faith.

Have you ever been in love? Did you know there is tremendous power in love? It will make you do things you wouldn’t ordinarily do. In the same way that a tree will grow taller and stronger when its roots grow deep, you’ll be stronger and have more of God’s power operating in your life when you are rooted in love.

Faith works best when rooted in love. 1 Corinthians 13 gives us a picture of what that looks like. Among other things, love is patient and kind. It does not seek its own way. It is not jealous or boastful or proud. It goes on to say that love works alongside faith.

Today, choose love instead of choosing your own thinking. When you do, you are showing that God is first place in your life. You are establishing yourself in His love. Let it be firm within you. Let love build security in you, and empower you to live in and kindness in every area of your life!

“”¦that you, being rooted and grounded in love”¦” 

(Ephesians 3:17, NKJV)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, I come to You today, and invite You to take control of my heart and mind. Father, show me how to love the way You love, so that I can be rooted in God-given love, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few men and women are
speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during
my hunt for something concerning this. adreamoftrains best web hosting
