Hope, Love and. . . ?

I think we often forget that faith is the word that should be included with those. Everywhere I look--even within some Christian stores--it's Peace, Hope, Love, or grace or compassion. . . the list is endless. But rarely, however, do I find one that includes faith.

Don't you see? It would be very hard for the devil to attack love, because there are certain types of love that our culture and those before it are accustomed to; love for the opposite gender, love for your children, love for friends. . . No--if someone came up to you and said, "Don't love anyone!", how likely would you be to agree with that person?

Then there's hope. No one wants to be told to give up hope. Again, it would be quite difficult for the devil to attack.

But faith. . . Faith tends to be very fragile. People tend to always have excuses to give up faith, whether it's something as simple as losing a car key to a car crash. It's our sinful nature to rebel against God.

Yet, faith can be so incredible. . .Jesus tells us that even if our faith is the size of a mustard seed, he can use it to move mountains through us. Which is exactly why the devil is trying to tell us it's not important.
