Faith (is love in action)

To the angel of the church in Thyatira write:
I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance,
and that you are now doing more than you did at first. (Revelation 18a,19)

I believe
therefore I will do
what the Master asks.

What the Master asks
is sometimes beyond my ken
yet I must do it.

Yet it only appears beyond my ken
because the Master has prepared me for the task.
Therefore in faith I will trust Him.

The ways the Master has prepared me
are by actions I couldn’t imagine.
Therefore I will believe in what the Master has planned.

The actions I couldn’t imagine
become more and more evident as
I work on what the Master commands.

And the more and more
I abide in the Master’s desires
My faith translates into love in action.
Today on earth
Someday in Paradise.
