In a world marked by hatred and suffering, those who are molded by biblical standards should be guided by a life of service to others, empathy, solidarity and altruism. These characteristics every day more forgotten by people in our society due to the increase of lawlessness and cooling the act of love.

It is in the daily walk that Christian shows his work and his commitment to the good news of the gospel. This involvement, however, implies a passionate engagement and modeled at all by the example of life of one who came into the world to serve and not to be served.

Jesus makes clear the reason for his coming into the world to save sinners, but another meaning of his ministry is arguably stands out in its ability to serve others and to give it due attention. Models abound in Christ to exemplify this attitude and, at every moment, we are impacted by the Master legacy paradigm by his disciples and consecutively to those who would forward it to the task of spreading the gospel to the world.Undoubtedly's task can only be carried out if it is wrapped in love and faith, for love gives meaning to this mission and faith cements accomplish this same task given that only through it the individual can please God and go further with in order to preach the truth to an unbelieving world that little by little is dehumanized and become averse to any religious thought format.The writer to the Hebrews makes explicit that "without faith it is impossible to please him, because it is necessary that he who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him" (Hebrews 11.6).

I said earlier that faith cementation to action and, in turn, all the action to be undertaken in God and God is to be held in faith. It's something unconditional. Everyone who want to do the work of God and serve him the satisfaction should demonstrate unwavering faith in divine providence and care if, in fact, want to please him.In Abraham, the father of the nation of Israel and also considered the father of believers, we see this willingness to trust God and walk the paths of faith without question the Eternal's purposes. The attitude of a Christian who really knows God should be supported in a deep trust and fellowship with the Lord procedure.

Those who succeed on this journey will always be those who make the Most High your stronghold and the Holy Spirit, your guide.Leaving the stage a bit of faith, let us turn to the scene of love and service, since without love every human effort is nothing but blind activism and meaningless. Without love, martyrdom is just pointless suicide, an innocuous semblance of engagement. The apostle Paul, on such an important fact, declares:"And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, love, and have not charity, it profits nothing. "(1 Corinthians 13.2,3).

The Personal Application Study Bible (1995, p.1602), published by the Publishing House of the Assemblies of God (CPAD), about love and Christian service states:"Love is more important than all the spiritual gifts exercised in the church. Great faith, dedication and sacrifice from acts or power to perform miracles have little effect if they are devoid of love. Love makes our actions and gifts are useful. Although people have different gifts, love is available to all. "
