These scriptures tell us that faith comes by hearing but just as important is the fact that faith only works through love. I have heard believers say that they have fallen away from their faith. I have also heard believers say that they have reached a dry spell where they do not feel as strong in their faith. There is an answer.
Start with thinking about all of the things that you love and why you love them. Are these the things that are of Christ and from Christ? The Apostle Paul tells us that faith works through love. It is only by love that a believer finds their way back to Christ and to the fountain that flows where you will never thirst again.
Gal3.2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
Gal3.5 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—
Gal5.6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.
