True faith makes belief a reality. In other words, if we have true faith, our belief is so strong that we live by our belief. Therefore, if one believes in Jesus, he/she would live according to Jesus’ spirit of selflessness, forgiveness, sacrifice, compassion, mercy, humility, and undying faithfulness (even in the face of betrayal and hurt). Faith in God leads to love for God; love for God leads to obedience to His commandments (John 14:15); obedience to his commandments leads to receiving his Spirit (Act 5:32); and receiving the Spirit leads to life in Christ.

God deals in TWO (2) actions which we can relate to.

1. FAITH.
2. LOVE.

Of those two......only LOVE is lasting.

FAITH gets us to heavens door but there is where faith ends, but LOVE keeps that door open then for "Eternity".

Matthew 22:37-40...…...
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments” .
