Embracing Faith, Hope, and Love

“(12) For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. (13) And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these [is] love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NKJV

Our Heavenly Father’s relationship with us transcends our intellect and understanding; it’s rooted in faith, hope, and love, each activated in us through the Holy Spirit. Faith anchors our belief in His identity, hope assures us of His promises, and love ignites a passionate pursuit of deeper intimacy with Him. Immutable and eternal, our Heavenly Father remains unchanged throughout eternity. The same covenant-keeping God who walked with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob upholds His promises to us today. The Warrior God who delivered Israel out of Egypt is the same One who delivers us from bondage into freedom.

All the works of our Father are more than mere tasks; they’re reflections of His character upon the canvas of creation. He doesn’t strive to prove Himself; rather, He emanates His perfection upon a world crafted for His glory (Revelation 4:11).

He is not work-oriented but relationally intentional, choosing to reveal Himself to fallen humanity out of His boundless love. This intentionality isn’t driven by necessity but by a relational desire.

He beckons us into a relationship marked by love and oneness, where fear gives way to the assurance of His steadfast presence and He invites us to flourish in His love, knowing that in Him, we find true fulfilment and purpose.

Our Father desires our hearts because He longs for us to know His.
