Faith, Forgiveness and Love (FFL) are the language of the body of Christ.
When things are not going the way we intended or we are being misused or mistreated, it is the word of Faith the keeps us going. Hebrews 11:1, 6 states now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. We are speaking things into existence by our words. Did not God use His words to create this world, the things within and us?
Then came Peter to Jesus, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Jesus saith unto him, I say to thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22). If we do not forgive our brothers and sister, then God will not forgive us. Jesus, said Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.(Luke 23:24) Jesus asked forgiveness for us and God forgave us. God loved us so much that He gave his only begotten son to die on the cross so that we my be connected with Him again.
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (I Corinthians 13: 4-7). Love heals a multitude of sins.
FFL is the language of the body of Christ.
