6For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. [simple_tooltip content=’1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing.

3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law.

4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.

7 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?

8 This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you.

9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.

10 I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is.

11 And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased.

12 I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off!

13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.’](Galatians 5:1-13)[/simple_tooltip]


The dictionary defines work as “to operate, or cause to operate, especially effectively.” The driving force behind true biblical faith is God’s kind of love. When we have a clear revelation of God’s love for us, faith comes naturally. Faith is a byproduct of God’s love.

Once a man argued with me that God doesn’t heal all the time. His motivation for this belief was the fact that his twelve-year-old daughter was quadriplegic and mentally retarded. He believed God made her that way. I shared Scriptures, he shared Scriptures, and we arrived at a stalemate.

Finally I asked, “What kind of father are you that you don’t love your daughter enough to see her healed?” He became really mad and assured me that he would do anything to see his daughter healed, even to the point of taking her place if that could happen. I responded, “Do you think God loves her less than you do?”

He could argue doctrine, but when it came down to love it was inconceivable that a God who not only has love but is love [simple_tooltip content=’He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.’](1 John 4:8)[/simple_tooltip] would not use His power to see us whole. Those who don’t believe that He will act on their behalf are people who don’t understand His love for them. Faith works when we know the great love God has for us.

Ask the Lord for a revelation of how much He loves you today, and watch your faith come alive.
