And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
– 1 Corinthians 13:13
Faith, hope and love are the marks of a maturing follower of Jesus. As we grow in our walk with Christ we should increase in faith, hope and love. That being the case, these three are an important gauge for self examination as a disciple.
Is your trust in God growing? Do you trust Him for your eternal salvation? Do you trust Him for your earthly provision? Is your hope in God or your 401k? Is it a confident hope or a wishful thinking hope filled with doubt? Are you loving God and loving others? And is that love being expressed in an overflow of good works? This are hard questions to wrestle with, but it’s important that we do. Because growing disciples of Jesus are growing in faith, hope and love.
