Faith title : Bible Verses About Love and Faith: Scriptures for Encouragement, Strength and Devotion

Hand in hand with faith is love. Christians have been taught to never deny love to anyone who needs it, regardless if the person is a stranger, a friend or even an enemy. Given the sacrifices of the Lord for the rest of mankind, we must strive to keep our faith strong and our love tenacious.
