"Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father."(1 Thessalonians 1:3)
"For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come."(1Thessalonians 1:9-10)
"Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ."(Titus 2:12-13)
Remembering without ceasing your (work of faith),(labor of love),(patience of hope)
How you turned to God from idols, (work of faith),to serve the living and true God (labor of love) and to wait for His Son from heaven (patience of hope).
Denying ungodliness and worldly lusts.(work of faith)
Living soberly,righteously and godly (labor of love)
Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. (patience of hope)
Faith,Love and Hope they go hand in hand.Each one effects the other.
The more we appreciate our justification,and that is worked in us by seeing more and more just what we were delivered from and what it cost God in providing it and out of that appreciation our sanctification or our being set apart to God judicially and experiencing that set-apartness in this life now is activated more in our everyday walk and the result of our closer walk with our Savior in our everyday experiences now,works in us more anticipation of our glorification and our being with Him.
Believing,Growing,Waiting,that is the prescription for the Christian life.
