For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
For [if we are] in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but only faith activated and expressed and working through love.
Galations 5:6 AMP
If Faith Works By Love
Unbelief Is Rooted In A Lack of Understanding of God’s Love
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Love Is The Driving Force of Faith!
Remove or Diminish Love and Faith Stops
It’s Impossible To Walk In Great Faith Without A Proper,
Biblical Understanding of God’s Love For You
Sometimes It’s Not A Lack of Faith,
It’s a Lack of Understanding God’s Love
The Greatest Revelation You Can Have of Anything In The Bible
Is A Revelation of God’s Love
The Distortion of God’s Love Is Possibly The Greatest Weapon Of The Adversary Against Believers Today
Religion Is One Of The Greatest Teachers Of The “Conditional” Love Of God
God Is Love
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1 John 4:7-8
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
*1 Corinthians 13:4-6*
God’s Love Is In You
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
The World Will Know That We Belong To Jesus Because Our Love For One Another
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
Wives Will Be Extravagantly Loved Because Their Husbands Will Love Them Like Christ Loved The Church
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
We Will Be Extravagantly Generous Because Love Is Giving By Nature
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
We Will Accurately Communicate The Gospel Because The Gospel Is A Revelation of God’s Love For Man
that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
We Will Have More Confidence In God Because We Believe In The Love That He Has For Us
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:
“For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We Will Perfectly and Accurately Reflect The True Nature Of God’s Character Because He Is Love
Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
We Will Fall In Love With God and Will Fall Out Of Love With Sin
For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
We Will Be Free From Fear Because, Perfect Love Drives Out Fear
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
1 John 4:18
Loneliness, Depression, Discouragement, and Defeat Can All Be Turned Around By Understanding God’s Love
We Will Be Spiritually Mature
but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—
We Will Never Fail, Because Love Never Fails
Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
1 Corinthians 13:8
