Devotional: Faith Expressed

Galatians 5 talks about things that can sidetrack a believer from the right faith walk. Verse 7 says the wrong values and beliefs can prevent us from living in obedience to the Truth ("You were running [the race] well; who has interfered and prevented you from obeying the truth?")

Verse 6 says, "For [if we are] in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or uncircumcised, but only faith activated and expressed and working through love."

A life of faith is rightly demonstrated through love, right love.
If love prompts me, then there would be a careful desire to live authentic and right before God and man.

If love prompts me, then to see the mind of God and the things that pleases Him become most important than my faulty viewpoints and misplaced longings.

If love prompts me, I will be diligent in learning right principles from His Word and grow from ignorance, traditionalism, legalism, hypocrisy, and immaturity.

If love prompts me, then to be an encouragement and a right guide to my brothers become more important than fitting into the mold and wrong practices of this world.

Today, i pray for grace to live my faith expressed in true love.
