Did you notice in the section we talked about last Sunday (2/13/11) from Galatians 5:1-13 that Paul talks in terms of “Faith, hope and love,” just like he does in the more well known “Love Chapter,” 1 Corinthians 13?
For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus … the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
We are patiently looking forward — hoping in faith — to the time when we will finally be really as Righteous as God sees us now. And, in the meantime, “…the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
So, we live every day, walking by faith in God; hoping for what is surely to come; loving God and those around us in visible, practical ways. Pretty cool!
Resting in Him,
