Reading through the verses on Faith in Hebrews chapter 11, It suddenly dawned on me that regardless of our earthly possessions, the only things we have that we can take with us into eternity is our Faith and our Love. Both of which are gifts from God above.
God, Himself, is LOVE. LOVE is His nature and He has chosen to share and it with us mere mortals.
Those in this world who do not know God, don’t and can’t truly know Love. “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16 KJV). Paul reveals too, that God indwells us. And if that is true (which it is), then His Love dwells within us in all His supernatural abundance. One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all (Ephesians 4:6 KJV).
“For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith . . . For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Galatians 5:5; Ephesians 2:8 KJV)
As the old song goes, “You can’t have one without the other.” Faith and Love are as inseparable as believers are from God.
