Your Faith Works by Love

If you aren’t seeing results with your use of the Law of Attraction, you may need to check to see where your heart is. The Law of Faith requires that the Law of Love be actively in use in order for your faith to work. Galatians 5:6 (AMP) tells us that: “….only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love” is of value to us.

So, what is the Law of Love? You may find it of interest that when the Law of Attraction was first discovered, many actually referred to it as the Law of Love. The forerunners of this knowledge knew that if they operated in love, their faith would work. They knew that if they walked in love with their neighbors, the Laws of Sowing & Reaping and Giving & Receiving would also work.

In the New Testament, Jesus ushered in by his teachings, a new covenant with man. He said that this covenant would replace the old covenant (the teachings of the Old Testament). Many believers still adhere to the Ten Commandments as given to Moses by God. However, Jesus told us that under the new covenant, all of the law would be fulfilled in one law – the Law of Love. Matthew 22:37–40 (CEV) reads:

Jesus answered: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. 38This is the first and most important commandment. 39The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, "Love others as much as you love yourself." 40All the Law of Moses and the Books of the Prophets are based on these two commandments.

Later in the New Testament, Paul summarized these two laws into one when he wrote his letter to the Christians in southern Galatia. In Galatians 5:14 (NIV), Paul wrote, “The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

If you have hatred or fear in your heart, you cannot be operating in the Law of Love. Hatred, jealousy, envy, and fear will hinder the ability of your faith to work. You can believe that good things will come your way, but if you are putting out bad energy by way of these negative feelings, your faith will not work no matter how hard you try.

Work on actively giving up any negative feelings you have about others. Release your jealousy and envy and be genuinely happy for others’ good fortunes. Be a beacon of love to everyone you come into contact with and your faith will flourish, manifesting the desires of your heart.
