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.
