The opposite of love is hate. The opposite of faith is fear. Many people are now demonstrating hatred toward others. Hatred shows a lack of peace in a person, and a lack of the realization of God's Love inside of them. God makes available His Love through His Son, Jesus Christ, to everyone who will sincerely believe in Him. People have been deceived to reject God's Love, and to blame Him when they get hurt or things go wrong in their life. God waits for you to respond to His Love, but sadly, only a few discover the benefits of His Love. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16. Jesus Christ is the only way that you can come to God. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6.
We all have been given a short time to live here on the Earth, to use the gift of free will to choose to accept or to reject God, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus came not to condemn you, but rather to ransom you from the death penalty you have earned by committing sins. "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Romans 8:1-2. God desires that you repent of your sins and choose to believe upon Jesus, always living holy through Christ. "But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:22-23. Faith demands that you demonstrate your love and obedience to God and to Jesus Christ by continually believing. Faith in God, and Jesus Christ, is a vow to be faithful, that must always be kept and unbroken, like marriage. Be careful to not deny God or Jesus with your words, thoughts, or actions, through unbelief or disobedience.
"...Have faith in God." Mark 11:22. God requires faithfulness from you, as the disobedient and rebellious are not permitted in God's Presence. "Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful." 1 Corinthians 4:2. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6. Diligently seek God."Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23. The Christian life is the most rewarding and exciting adventure that you can imagine. There is nothing boring about following after Jesus Christ! All things are possible to them that believe. You have an assignment from God that is waiting to be discovered and successfully completed. Everyone can pray and give to help support the work of spreading The Gospel Of Jesus Christ to people around the world so that others may be delivered from separation from God and from destruction. God gives gifts to each person to carry out their assignment. Believe God's Word. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17. Make sure you place your relationship with God, and Jesus Christ, first above all other people and things in your life. Obey God's Instructions, so that you may be blessed, and inherit the gift of eternal life. "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 2. "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Revelation 21:6-8. Always abide with Jesus. "But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof." Romans 13:14. Stop worshipping yourself, and yield to Jesus Christ. Repent of all your sins, and believe upon Jesus Christ.
