Faith, Love, Endurance
by Kathleen Whitten
What we do in life is generated by our faith (trust and belief in God’s Word, NOT what we can see, feel or experience). Love must be the motivation behind our work. And just as the continual flame of hope burns bright in our heart, it produces patience and endurance under pressure.
More formally written by Paul: “We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1Thessalonians 1:3)
Today, we directly apply Paul’s words by knowing that:
1. Through Jesus Christ, we have a living and constant hope regardless of our present circumstances.
2. Hearing, studying and meditating on The Truth/The Bible grows our personal faith (* “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17)
3. And as our personal faith grows stronger, it can literally change our circumstances. No longer do we need to allow our circumstances to weaken or change our faith.
