2nd Thessalonians 1:3 says
“We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.”
Interesting is how the Bible placed side by side “Faith Growth” with “Love Growth”…Or put it this way “Growing Inwardly” and “Growing Outwardly”
Faith happens inside, Love is a show of what has happened inside publicly..
Think about it…Isn’t that what Brother James was saying in James 2:18 …. “But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.”
So that leads to the ultimate question; “How come there is so much faith in the church and so little love?
That’s for you to answer on a individual and self evaluation basis.
God bless you as you “HONESTLY” do so.
Author of Life, King of Kings and the Great I AM…We thank you for the salvation of our Souls and the gift of Faith but we ask that You help us growth of faith in and with Your love only because only Your love can sustain our faith in You in Jesus mighty name…Amen
