Now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Living "agape" is a daily commitment of the will to vacate the premises of the heart with its own preferential affections, and to make its chambers a fleshly canteen for the liquid love of God.
Yes, it's still a challenge, but it's no longer the impossible dream. We live by faith. We love by faith. Faith and love are inseperable housemates that offer hospitality to hope. When we lose our faith to love, we lose the energy to love. Then we lose our hope.
Beloved, when all is said and done, living is for loving. This is our daily hope: faith expressing itself through love.
(Beth Moore "Believing God Day By Day)
