Faith Expressing Itself Through Love (Gal. 5:6)

“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.” – Gal. 5:6 (NIV)

When the Bible says something like “the only thing that counts is.. ” I tend to take notice.

“that counts” (“availeth any thing,” KJV) is isxýō = strength that “gets into the fray” (action), i.e. engaging the resistance. For the believer, it refers to the Lord strengthening them with combative, confrontive force to achieve all He gives faith for. That is, facing necessary resistance that brings what the Lord defines as success.

Wow. You may want to read that again. Slow down and REALLY read that.

Therefore, if you want to get into the mix and succeed: it takes FAITH revealed by LOVE.

Don’t forget that. It’s the only thing that counts.
