For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved me and have come to believe that I came from God. (John 16:27)
Faith, all we need is faith. Faith is more than just a word. In Acts, the Christian faith is often called “the Way.” As Christians we must show our beliefs by what we do. The Lord requires us to do justice and to love goodness and to walk humbly with our God. We are called to loving mercy and doing justice for ALL. Apollos had a strong faith and defended that faith in public. Do you stand up for your faith in public? Do you stand up for others in public? Do you treat everyone with compassion and dignity no matter their race, gender, financial status, sexual orientation, age, or appearance? Are you judgmental? Are you welcoming to everyone? Do you believe?
