ot even the selfless silence as you intercede for an overburdened loved one, but a silence springing from absolute certainty that God knows what He’s doing. “My soul wait”.. quietly; patiently; trustingly.
And the faith of these dear saints was manifested in the ongoing work they performed to the glory of God, together with their selfless labour of Christian love, in ministering to their brothers and sisters in Christ.
Their sincere, selfless love came from God - for God is love and genuine love comes from Him alone and bears witness to their great salvation in Christ, for everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God - everyone who is walking in spirit and truth is knit together in Christian love.
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and was smitten of God for our sakes – so that by grace through faith in His selfless, sacrificial work on Calvary’s cross, we might be forgiven of our sin; brought back into fellowship with God; clothed in Christ's perfect righteousness; receive access to the throne of grace, and be endowed with the riches of God’s abundant blessings towards us – in Christ Jesus our Lord.
And the way Jesus had to travel to that pivotal point in the history of the world, was the way of the cross of Calvary, where His shed blood and selfless sacrifice, shattered the immovable barrier between sinful man and a holy God.
