When Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica, he opened his letter with these words: “We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thess. 1:2-3). In that statement, we see three things that can promote fruitful behavior in the Christian:
• Faith that produces work.
• Love that prompts labor.
• Hope that inspires endurance.
No Christian who has the full amount of faith, hope, and love will be unproductive in the kingdom of Christ. Do you want to be more fruitful in your Christianity? Then plant and grow seeds of faith, hope, and love and see what happens.
