Happy New Year, friend! Let's discover God's amazing grace!
Faith. Hope. Love. These beautiful words are delicately woven throughout Scripture. Faith being the assurance of things hoped for and the belief in what is unseen (Hebrews 11:1).
Hope allows us to be filled with joy and peace due to our trust in God (Romans 15:13). Love brings forth a nature of patience and kindness (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
The words offer us a glimpse into the nature of our God as well as an assurance of how God sees us as His beloved children.
Faith is what brings us into a relationship with God. Hope gives us the promise of eternal life spent with God. And love is what is freely given by God, time and time again.
Love being considered the greatest of these, partly because it goes beyond ourselves and can be extended to others (1 Corinthians 13:13).
God’s unconditional love opens our hearts to welcome faith, receive hope, and give love. God is the God of faith, hope, and love.
