For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. (Galatians 5:6 NIV)
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2 NIV)
I feel like The Lord is going to build on the seasonal theme of prayer and faith when we move into the season of love. As the prayer season comes to a close, the Lord spoke to us about faith in prayer to speak to the mountains that stand in the way of the building of the temple. He also has spoken about the City of our God, Mount Zion, in the context of living our days to establish that city in our families in Charlotte.
Prayer without faith engagement is not really prayer at all. We must pray with faith. In Mark 11:22, Jesus tells us to have faith in God in the contexts of prayer. Just like love needs to be mixed into prayer in order to bring the kingdom to the earth, so love has to have the same depth of involvement and mixture in our faith-faith expressing itself through love.
I feel like revelation of love, specifically that enhances faith is coming. Love filled faith produces a praying people that speaks to mountains and watches them move. The temple, the King's people, the Jesus people will have an increased presence in the earth when mountains of resistance are moved out of the way with shouts of grace! grace!
