LOVE BY FAITH

Posted on by julie

Daily Prayer for March 26th, 2020     

Dear Sovereign, God,

Please help me to labor in love, not works of the law—be patient and kind, not arrogant or rude. Without love, I am nothing. Holy Spirit, let me rejoice as I keep my faith in you!! In Jesus’ name. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 1:3 English Standard Version (ESV)

remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 13 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Way of Love

13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now, we see in a mirror dimly but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Hebrews 11:6 English Standard Version (ESV)

And without faith, it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
