But by faith we eagerly await through the spirit the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
Our faith is only seen when we use love to show it. Faith and Hope are empty without Love because it isn't visible. It has to be a faith that is put into action through expressions of love.
The whole time I was putting this message together I just kept praying that God's will would be done. I know there are a few things that I need to work on but of course I'm going to be my own worst critic. The thing that pleased me the most though was the fact that I actually did it. For three years I kept making excuses and putting off doing what God was calling me to do. Tonight is the night that I can finally say that I have actually stepped out of the boat instead of remaining comfortable in it and disobeying God. And that is what I am most proud of. When I got home I went straight into prayer and I just thanked the Lord with everything in me that I got to do what I did. I thanked him for his many blessings and I layed my heart out as to what it really meant for me to do such a thing. I have been blessed on this night more than I thought I could be. I know that this is what I'm supposed to do. I'm glad that I've taken my first steps towards what God wants. There are no more excuses! God is the greatest and His blessings never cease to amaze me. We have such a wonderful God and my will is to just obey him and be obedient no matter what that means.
