TOPIC: WHY YOUR FAITH WILL NOT WORK!
SCRIPTURE: GALATIANS 5:1-1, 1 PETER 4:1-8
St Augustine once asked: “What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Then Verse 6 of today’s 1st scripture says: “For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.” Note: FAITH WORKS BY LOVE! Without LOVE, even if you fast and pray for 100 years, your results will be few.
That is why you must constantly make sure that no trace of bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, stinginess, malice, hatred, racism, gossiping about others behind them, etc, is found in you. YOUR PRAYERS CANNOT WORK without LOVE. Love is the fuel of faith! Love is the engine oil of faith! Without it, your life’s vehicle will knock! Vs. 14 says “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” ALL THE LAW OF LIFE IS SUMMARISED IN ONE WORD – L-O-V-E.
If you still envy others, your prayer engine will knock. If you still compete with others, your FAITH will disappoint you. “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8). If you are fighting for titles and positions in church, you will not go far in life and ministry. Yes! If you are bitter with husband or wife, you will be BLOCKED in your fasting and prayer programmes and your report card will be: NO RESULTS! The greatest BLOCKER of your prayers is not the devil. It is LACK OF LOVE IN YOU.
Listen to Bob Goff: “But the kind of love that God created and demonstrated is a costly one because it involves sacrifice and presence. It’s a love that operates more like a sign language than being spoken outright.” Wow! Let your life be a sign to others!
