Paul concluded his message to the Ephesians with the idea of Love mixed with Faith(6:23), and I borrowed his thoughts for a bit. Here are some excerpts…
Love comes to seek and save the lost, while Faith believes they can be.
Faith empowers Jesus to prophetically imagine a new paradigm for the co-crucified: “Today, you will be with me in Paradise.” While Love communicates the fantastical truth: “I want you with me in paradise.”
Faith innervates Jesus’ declaration to the Samaritan woman, “If you only knew the gift God has for you….”
But Love is what got Jesus talking with her in the first place.
“Love joined with faith.”
Faith helps me believe the Gospel. Love helps me share it.
Without Faith, Love lacks vision and imagination, leaving us without mooring and definition.
Without Love, Faith becomes cold and unapproachable, leaving us bitter and mean.
We need both.
Love mixed with Faith.
I recently shared a message at an international church here in Phnom Penh on the topic of “Living Well – where the rubber meets the road.” We looked at four areas of living well abroad, with some [hopefully] practical ideas for each one. We looked at Living Well Abroad…Theologically, Spiritually, Relationally, and Psychologically.
