According to Galatians 5:6: For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. KJV
NIV: Galatians 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love
Therefore, any faith that is not expressed in love is a gimmicks. A faith exercised outside of love for God and man is no faith. Faith in God must of necessity reflect love for God and His creation – other people.
In our daily living then, in our endeavors, how much of our faith walks and work reflect love for God and others?
Going back to basics will realign us with the Truth of the Gospel. Self-centered faith ask for this and that for self gratification, aggradizement, and what not, failing to seek for the good of God and others.
I pray we all reexamine ourselves, ask for mercy where we have failed, and receive grace for realignment.
Thank you Lord for your faithfulness.
Proverbs 9:7 “Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse.
9:8 Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you.
9:9 Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.
When parents, brothers, sisters, peers, and all acquaintances that corrects our folly are all “jealous” “envious” of us, God , because of his great love for us will send our way experiences from the most unlikely places to teach us one or two things!
Proverbs 21:2 All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the LORD weighs the heart. 3 To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
Galatians 1:6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel–1:7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.
We must receive correction this day for God loves us!
We must flee from every works of wickedness.
