Scriptures: 1 John 4:7-12, Romans 7:14-25
Everyone believes that love is important and many would define love as a feeling. God desfines love as a choice that leads to actions, and He manifested His love by redeeming mankind.
God told us to love one another: we are to make the choice to love. God will dwell in that relationship because of our decision to love, but life can sometimes cause us to lose faith in mankind. Human relationships can be painful.
We all face the struggle within us that Paul writes about in the Book of Romans.
The person we truly want to be versus the person constantly fighting aganist sin. Evil is present and it's goal is to destroy relationships, trust and faith.
The Christian walk is a constant struggle against sin. Some give up. Why? Because they have tried to face sin with human willpower. Sin brought them into captivity and captivity in painful. Only through the power of Christ can we overcome sin, we can find delieverance through Jesus Christ.
Holding onto our faith is a life-long process and it begins with a choice, a choice to: love, forgive, trust, and believe. To have faith in Jesus, follow His ways and look for the good in others.
