“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
Galatians 5:6 NIV
What counts more than money, things, activities, entertainment or even a clean house?
Faith expressing itself through love.
It is like having a keychain packed full of keys and on it is this really little one, you know, that one random key that you are not sure what it is for but you are afraid to throw it out?
What if on the packed keychain of your life, you find out that there is a key that unlocks a vault where all the richest treasures are stored? You would use it, wouldn’t you?
That key is faith in Jesus expressed through love.
Jesus told His disciples in Luke 17:6 that they didn’t need to have big faith. He said that if they put into action the little faith they did have, mountains would move.
Just a lil’ bit, that’s all you need.
It’s not the size of your faith but the size of your God.
A tiny bit of a faith, a glimpse of an idea, a crumb of hope, that is all.
Get a little bit of the dream Jesus has for you, add love and put it into action.
Take a little bit of hope in his power, add a pinch of faith and do something.
When you are at that place where it seems a positive change is more like turning the Titanic than turning a key, get with Jesus.
If you need faith for your situation, He will let you use His.
If you need to remember the dream, ask God, He dreamt it first.
If you need hope and a bit of encouragement, He is the God of all hope.
You just need a little bit to start with.
What is the Lord’s vision for your life today?
What can you do with the little faith you have?
How will you express it through love today?
