The Kitchen Table
and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory 1 Peter 1:8
Love creates hope that inspires faith and faith is what we do while grace (God’s love) is what God does. We fall in love through words. We get impressed with works but even works become words. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. As we receive His words with our spirit we can begin rejoicing in His joy. God’s love is greater than any peril or problem we might be facing. Our trials and troubles don’t tell us who God is, truth does. God’s word is truth. Love is such a powerful part of our lives that it is important that we receive the right words from the right source. Our lives, now and forever, are at stake. Let your faith and hope take you to love and love greatly. Heaven will be filled with great love, we might as well learn how to live in love now by rejoicing in the here and now.
