BE SOBER, PUTTING ON THE BREASTPLATE OF FAITH AND LOVE; AND FOR AN HELMET, THE HOPE OF SALVATION, 1 THESSALONIANS 5:8.  NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN, HEBREWS 11:1.  AN EXAMPLE OF FAITH IS WALKING TO YOUR WALL AND TURNING ON THE LIGHT SWITCH.  YOU HAVE FAITH THAT THE LIGHTS WILL COME ON WHEN YOU FLIP THE SWITCH.  IF YOU DIDN’T HAVE FAITH IN THAT, YOU WOULD NOT FLIP THE SWITCH.
THE BIBLE TELLS US, THAT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.  HE WANTS TO REWARD HIS CHILDREN AND GIVE THEM THE DESIRES OF THEIR HEART.  THE BIBLE SAYS, IF WE HAVE FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, REMOVE HENCE TO YONDER PLACE; AND IT SHALL REMOVE; AND NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU, MATTHEW 17:20.
GOD ALSO WANTS US TO HAVE LOVE.  IF YOU CANNOT LOVE YOUR BROTHER THAT YOU CAN SEE, HOW CAN YOU LOVE GOD THAT YOU CANNOT SEE.
LEARN TO LOVE OTHERS AND IT WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO FORGIVE OTHERS.   TO TRULY LOVE OTHERS, YOU NEED TO LIVE FOR OTHERS.  DON’T WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT YOURSELF.  LEARN TO LOOK AT THE NEEDS OF OTHERS.  PEOPLE DON’T ALWAYS NEED JUST MONEY.  THEY MIGHT HAVE SPIRITUAL NEEDS.
1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-8, TELLS US THAT LOVE IS CHARITY.  LOVE IS KINDESS AND LOVE IS NOT ENVY.  LOVE IS NOT EASILY PROVOKED AND DOES NOT THINK OF EVIL THOUGHTS.  LOVE DOES NOT REJOICE IN INIQUITY BUT IN THE TRUTH OF GOD.  LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS  AND HAS HOPE. LOVE NEVER FAILS.
