Faith + Love = Protection

1 Thessalonians 5:8 KJV

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

The Christian walking by faith and in love should have no concern for their future! There is no reason to fear or worry! We know the end from the beginning. God has promised us a future and eternal reward for those who place their faith and trust in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am fully aware of the state of this world. I understand and can see that things are getting worse in this world daily. 2 Timothy 3:1 says, “This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come.” The Amplified Bible actually says perilous times will “set in.” These times will be like a rain that comes, and it seems like it will never pass. We often say this rain has set in. While I am aware of what is going on in this world, I do not understand the shock that many Christians seem to have. The Bible has plainly warned us that these things would come. They are here!

Thank God that is not the only thing the Bible tells us! 1 Thessalonians 5:8 says, “… putting on the breastplate of faith and love…” The breastplate is a part of the armor that is for protection. It was there to preserve the soldier. You are a soldier in God’s army! Faith and love result in preservation and protection! Do not have any concern about what is going on or what is to come. Worry adds absolutely nothing to your life but does rob you of your joy and peace in the present (Matthew 6:27). Place your faith in God to see you through. Nothing is impossible when you believe! Also, check up on your love walk. We are responsible to love God and others. Don’t allow the bad things going on around you to hinder the love of God within you! Trust God and it shall be just as He’s promised. God will see us through to the end!
