Faith Operates By Love

Without love we cannot effectively release faith for the miraculous. Throughout the gospels we see that love motivates every miracle Jesus performs. He loves people, and puts the needs of others before Himself. Even when they beat, mock and crucify Him, He still loves and forgives them. And because of His unconditional love His supernatural resurrection happens and the miraculous still takes place today.

Paul teaches us in Galatians 5:6, “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” (NIV) Faith is not activated by legalism or by religious acts, but by love alone. The Amplified version of the Bible puts it this way, For [if we are] in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love.”

Love is defined in 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, “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. Love never fails.”

The Characteristics of Love Checklist:

  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Not jealous
  • Nor prideful
  • Does not behave rudely
  • Not selfish
  • Not easily provoked
  • Thinks no evil
  • Does not rejoice in iniquity
  • Rejoices in truth
  •  It bears, believes, hopes and endures all things.
  •  Love never fails.

Examine your heart. Is there any characteristic on love’s checklist above that you need to work on? These attributes of love activate, energize, express and workout faith for the miraculous. And when you lack in the area of love your faith is weak and ineffective. So, strengthen your love today, because faith operates by love.
