5 But we have the true hope that comes from being made right with God, and by the Spirit we wait eagerly for this hope. 6 When you’re joined to the Anointed One, circumcision and religious obligations can benefit you nothing. All that matters now is living in the faith that works and expresses itself through love. Galatians 5:5-6, TP

Beloved, religious fervor, self-effort, and religion does not impress God!  No number of religious activities or religious attendance can make you right with God.  No, my friend you have been made right with God by the work of God’s love in the person of Jesus the Christ.  God decided to love you and to remove performance-based religion out of the way.  Anytime you attempt to live by your own religious plans and projects, you are cut off from Christ, you fall out of grace. Therefore, it is important to know and understand that you were saved by grace through faith not of religious works or self-effort.  Because of God’s Love and His Spirit living within you, you are now living everyday of your life in the faith that works and expresses itself through God’s Love for you.  Yes, you can exercise your faith daily and trust God for everything you need and desire because He Loves you!  It is God’s Love for you that you can have faith as the substance of what you hope for and the evidence of what you do not currently see to manifest in your life.  Your faith in God’s Love for you allows healing to manifest in your life.  Your faith in God’s Love for you frees you up from worry and being anxious for the things that you need to live.  Your faith works because GOD LOVES YOU!
