January 05 of Abounding in Christ
Abound with hope, faith and love
Without hope we would be in despair.
If we lack either hope, faith or love we would be utterly defeated and laid waste in both our spiritual lives and our earthly witness for Christ.
In order to be victorious in both our spiritual life and our earthly witness for Christ we must abound with hope, faith and love.
By hope we can be filled with zeal and enthusiasm causing us to at least begin laboring for Christ.
By faith we can gain the strength to endure the trials and tribulations encountered in our Christian walk.
By love we can gain many allies and friends along the way.
