Scripture Verse Of The Week

Colossians 1 Verse 3 and 4:

V3: “We always thank God, The father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you. V4: for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints”.

How encouraging it was for the Colossians, to know they were remembered in Paul’s prayers.

How encouraging it would be for all of us to know, we are in the prayers of somebody, which I am assured we all are. This ministry’s prayer for all of you, firstly that all would come to know and accept Our Lord and Our Friend, Christ Jesus and secondly for all of you walking in the Grace and acceptance of Our Loving Lord and Friend.

Let us all be known as people of Faith and Love.

These New Testament Power Words are often used together. If we are to have enduring selfless love for others you must first of all have faith in God. Studies show that love for others is important part of good emotional health.

Most important our need for relationship with God, without a relationship with God, our love for others will soon run out of steam. Only when we have faith in God can we go on loving the unlovely and the unresponsive.

No Faith in God, No Love like God’s.

Where do Faith and Love come from. Faith and Love spring from Hope. The apostle Paul tells us, that Hope that is stored up for us in heaven is where Faith and Love springs from. {Colossians 1 verse 4 and 5}

Faith and love is to bear fruit and grow {Colossians 1 verse 6}.

We know that faith grows because of he story of the mustard seed. We know that love grows the world sing about it, but we are talking about the God kind of love. Love for God and in God, grows the more you get into His word and the more you walk and talk with Him.

The more you know and love God the more you want others to know and love God. We must remember that Hope is not a consequence of Faith and Love, but the origin of Faith and Love springs from Hope. When we hold before us the sure and certain hope of our heavenly calling, it is out of that Hope, Faith and Love springs.

Faith and love, use them to build yourself up in your walk to day, the best way to build them up is to use them to glorify the wonderful God we serve.

We all know that without faith, it is impossible to please God. {Hebrews 11 verse 6}

Without the Love of God, it is impossible to be fulfilled and to  be used by being His hands and his feet.

Colossians 3 verse 1 and 2 }Message Bible} ” So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and and be alert to what is going on around Christ – that’s where the action is. See things from His perspective.”

Let all of us learn to use Faith and Love and all that we have in Christ Jesus {Our Lord and our Friend} more and more graciously with His help.

God Bless.
