This process is activated by our own will, through faith and love for Jesus Christ, to initiate faith and activate the Spirit and grace. James 2:20 – But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Gal 5:6 – For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. The Greek word for worketh is “energeo” or our English word energy. Meaning to be active, efficient, effectual (fervent),to be mighty in, or shew forthself. Only the love of God working in each Christian can cleanse us of our sin. 1 John 1:7 – But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship (“koinonia”/social intercourse) one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. John 15:12-14 – This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14) Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Philemon 6 – communication of thy faith may become effectual (active) by the acknowledging (full discernment) of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Communication is the Greek word “koinonia: meaning partnership, participation, fellowship or “social intercourse” (The communication of thy faith is saying that the true work of the Spirit is the love of God manifest and being communicated by our faith in Jesus Chrsit as a living sacrifice, and becoming a living sacrifice unto one another.)
Acts 1:3 – To whom also he shewed himself alive after his “passion” by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: What was the Jesus’ passion? The Fathers house and the filling up of that house with many sons who would benefit from His life and sacrifice, possessing the same passion. He demonstrated the passion on the cross as He gave us His body and His blood on the cross of Calvary. (This same passion of Christ (from the anointing) should set our heart aflame with Jesus. The passion of Christ constrains us to the altar of fire to become a living sacrifice.) 1 Peter 4:12-13 – Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13) But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
