Faith, hope and love always abide, they would never pass away, they are forever-abiding laws. God works with these three principles, the bible tells us that he calls those things that cannot be observed with our optical eyes as if they already existed, now that is faith in simple words i.e. calling the things you hope for, or anticipate as though they already existed, meaning God hopes for something and calls it into being, remember Faith is the substance (i.e. tangible material) of things hoped for, so without hope there can be no faith, but then the bible also tells us in Galatians 5:6 that faith works (i.e. is made active or comes alive) by love, meaning love is the engine for faith, without love, faith would not work. Remember the bible says perfect love casts out fear and if there is no fear then there is faith, so love produces faith and the bible says love is the greatest of the three.
God is a faith God and he hopes, but he is not faith nor hope, he is love! Love is greatest. Why did he send Jesus? Because he loved, why did Jesus heal the sick? The bible tells us that he was moved with compassion, love and he healed them.
Choose love, the bible says without faith it is impossible to please God, very true but faith would not work without love. Our Father is love, be ye followers of him as dear children and choose to walk in love always.
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
