5. You Love By Faith
The impossible can become reality in the hardest of relationships.
Everything about the Christian life is based on faith. You love by faith just as you received Christ by faith, just as you are filled with the Holy Spirit by faith, and just as you walk by faith.
If the fruit of the Spirit is love, you may logically ask, “Is it not enough to be filled with the Spirit?” This will be true from God’s point of view, but it will not always be true in your actual experience.
Demonstrating God’s Love Requires Faith
Hebrews 11:6 says, “without faith it is impossible to please Him.” Obviously there will be no demonstration of God’s love where there is no faith.
If you have difficulty in loving others, remember that Jesus has commanded, “Love each other as much as I love you.” It is God’s will for you to love. He would not command you to do something that He will not enable you to do. In 1 John 5:14, 15, God promises that if you ask anything according to His will, He hears and answers you. Relating this promise to God’s command, you can claim by faith the privilege of loving with His love.
God has an unending supply of His divine, supernatural, agape love for you. It is for you to claim, to grow on, to spread to others, and thus to reach hundreds and thousands with the love that counts, the love that will bring them to Jesus Christ.
In order to experience and share this love, you must claim it by faith; that is, trust His promise that He will give you all that you need to do His will on the basis of His command and promise.
The Greatest Power has Changed History
Through faith, that supernatural, divine love of God will reach out where nothing else can go to capture men and women for Christ. The love which results from that faith will captivate people everywhere so that, as we live and love by faith, we will spread God’s love throughout the world. This love is contagious, attractive and aggressive. It creates hunger for God. It is active — constantly looking for loving things to do, people to uplift, and lives to change.
