Abounding in Christ April 29 of Abounding in Christ

Love is the purpose of truth

Hope is the light of truth.

Faith is the strength of truth.

Love is the purpose of truth.

Without love seeking truth looses all meaning.

Without faith the truth will not be applied.

Without hope truth will not be sought.

Brethren, the evil one will defeat you in that which you lack and not in that which you have.

If you lack love, you will be defeated by the lack of a sense of purpose and the presence of bitterness will preoccupy your mind and heart.

If you lack faith, you will be defeated by the lack of strength and the will to be victorious and you will be overcome by feelings of spiritual weakness called doubt.

If you lack hope, you will be defeated because you won't even try to win the victory and you will be overcome by feelings of discouragement and despair.

Love, hope and faith is the victory over sin.
