Faith…worketh by love.
NLT For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love.
MSG For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.
Why isn’t the power of God turned up to a higher volume in the Church? It’s because we aren’t walking in enough love yet. God wants us to have power, but first He has to be sure we will use that power in love. He wants to know that we won’t take it and mix it with judgment and criticism and blast people out of the water.
Do you want God to put a shotgun of spiritual power in your hand, so you can blow the works of the devil to kingdom come? Then focus on love. Pursue it. Study it. Grow up in it. Then you will see the power of God operating through you.
