The Love Triangle
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. – 1 Corinthians 13:13

When we think of a love triangle we usually think of an unhealthy relationship getting ready to explode. This devotion is not about that kind of triangle. It is about three components to a healthy Christian walk.
Faith, hope and love are as connected as the three sides to a triangle, and each is integral to the other. When Paul had finished instructing about the importance of love in the life of a believer he concludes with this summary: “And now these three remain; faith, hope and love.”
Our relationship with God begins by hearing, hearing leads to believing and believing leads to faith. Faith then is spurred on by hope. Faith is valueless if it is not accompanied by hope.
Faith is the motor which drives hope and hope is the tool which releases love. It is possible to have faith and hope without love, we see that often shown in despotic leaders of nations and people – but it is impossible to have true faith in God and hope in his promises without having his love released into our hearts.
James says, “Show me your faith without deeds and I will show you my faith by what I do” (James 2:18). My question is this: What was driving James to do good deeds? It was the love which accompanies faith and hope.
Here is my question to you: Does your faith and hope produce love for others? What is the expression of that love in your lifestyle? Faith and Hope produce a love driven purpose for our lives.

Prayer: Lord, help me to allow my faith and hope to be driven by your love. I don’t want to be a two sided triangle. Release your love into my heart. In Jesus name.
