Love is a choice and an action.
We grow faith by asking God for more faith, by obeying God. Also by keeping God’s Word in our mind.
Faith believes God watches over us, cares for us and hears our prayers. God does answer our prayers in many ways, even ways we can’t imagine.
We grow faith by understanding the Holy Spirit lives in us. God says, “I will put my Spirit in you. I will come to live in you.” The Holy Spirit lives in your heart and provides the power to serve Christ.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy. peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
But he replied to the man who told him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” And stretching out his hand toward his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
We are all bothers and sisters in Christ!
Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity.
1 Timothy 5:1-2
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:
1 Peter 4:10
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
