Faith expressed in love

Galatians 5:6 Message Translation
For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.

“Love is actually a form of spiritual warfare:  We’ve been trying to use God’s authority to get the upper hand over the devil, while Jesus used His authority to treat people with love and mercy.  You have to lay your life down to be willing to give someone mercy who doesn’t deserve it.  It’s the mercy of God that draws people to repentance.  Jesus just came to show us what we’ve got to do.  God only asks a willing heart.  God will be gracious and willing to teach you how to do it.  God wants to use born-again people to draw people to Christ.  People who aren’t reading their Bibles are reading Christians.  We’re being watched.”
– Joyce Meyer 

Your marriage may feel like a constant battle.  Today I would like to encourage you to FIGHT GOD’S WAY by laying down your life for your spouse.  The advantage is that God will be on your side.  Perhaps you can draw your spouse closer to Christ by showing them what He would do.
