"Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the window which hope has opened." Charles Haddon Spurgeon
I may not know where the next staircase leads, but if love built the stairs, I shouldn't be afraid to climb. If hope has opened a window for me, it is one I long to look out.
Love, the builder, always exceeds my expectations; in fact, love is able to do "immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine." Love never fails, and always wants what's best for me. (Ephesians 3, I Corinthians 13)
Hope, which opens the window and offers the view, is the mystery of Christ in me, is full of glorious riches and is alive! (Colossians 1, I Peter 1)
Faith, which helps me begin the climb, is given by Christ, who knows just what I need for it to grow. He makes it perfect. (Hebrews 12)
That sounds like an incredible trio of contractors. Race you to the top!
