A Commentary on the Modern World


Lacking Hope, Faith, and Love

Although there are many people who would strive for people to live their life controlled by the feelings that are provoked by their circumstances, it is a doomed mindset for living. What must become common knowledge to all people is that feelings and circumstances cannot be the primary motivators for their actions – because circumstances dictate feelings and feelings are often the reason we will hurt ourselves, our neighbors, and God. Whatever hope you have in who God can make you to become, it will only come about when you are able to ignore the feelings that are provoked by your circumstances to get through the circumstance rather than to be moved by them. What makes a great fighter is his willingness to stand toe to toe with his opponents and overcome them – not let the circumstance of the fight and the fear of the blows push him to let his opponent overcome himself. The hope of being a greater fighter is possible by faith to believe that you have the power to fight and the loving obedience to step forward to that hope in spite of circumstances and emotions. The hope of being a greater servant of Christ is possible by faith to believe that God will grant you the power to become your hope and the loving obedience to step forward to accomplish that hope in spite of your emotions and circumstances. Without a hope, one has nowhere to go. Without faith, one has no power to get there. Without love, one has no ability to step forward. This is why if you have a great hope and a great faith but lack love, you will go nowhere.
