The Word on Wednesday

Todays verse comes from 1Thessalonians 1:2&3
"We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."

This brings to mind other scriptures which speak of faith, hope and love, it seems that this is a recurring theme with God. Where would we be without the 3. The greatest of these is love..., Christ so loved us that He gave... I think that it is so awesome that Christ commends us for exercising these 3 attributes. Also they are active verses so for someone like me who "learns by doing" I have an action ie. work, endurance,labor. We are supposed to be doing something for the kingdom, it is not passive but active. And for someone with a Mary spirit this is encouraging. So as you go about your day, your life remember that we are called to action.
