How Faith & Love Flow Together

Mark Virkler's picture

God's abiding realities include faith, hope and love (1 Cor. 13:13). In this article we will explore two of these three. In the twenty-six verses below, you will see that faith and love are linked. We maximize the release of the anointing of the Spirit of God when we are living in both faith and love.

  • Faith arises as God speaks and grants vision (Gen. 12:1-3; 15:5, 6; Rom. 10:17).
  • Love is expressed when a wave of God’s compassion flows out through you (Matt. 14:14; Jn. 7:37-39).

Faith and Love - A Biblical Meditation

Prayerfully meditate on the Scriptures below asking God to show you the powerful results of faith and love working together. Record the results of this meditation in your journal.

  1. If I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing (1 Cor. 13:2).
  2. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Cor. 13:13).
  3. But just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also (2 Cor. 8:7).

  16. In speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example (1 Tim. 4:12).

  22. Older men are to be temperate, dignified, sensible, sound in faith, in love, in perseverance... (Titus 2:2).
  23. Greet those who love us in the faith (Titus 3:15).
  24. I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints (Phil. 1:5).
  25. Did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom which He promised to those who love Him (Jas. 2:5)?
  26. I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first (Rev. 2:19). 

Prayer: Lord, birth both love and faith as supernatural manifestations of Your Spirit within my heart. I tune to flow to experience them bubbling up within me. Thank You, Lord!
