The erosion of your faith

A proper foundation is important to the strength of the structure that it supports, When God created Adam, he did so with the essence of who he is. God created in Adam the ability to choose, by giving Adam this ability,  God shows that intention was never designed to dominate or manipulate. God laid a foundation that was designed to withstand the elements of life that will erode around us. However, when Adam sinned, love was one of the principles’ built into the foundation. 1 Corinthians 13:1 IF I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [AMP] Paul gives us modern-day view of love that is designed to be displayed and reflect the holy character of God through us.
Faith is another key component in the foundation! Faith, gives us the ability see with clarity according to the word of God. Faith allows us to conduct ourselves according to the word of God. When we allow faith to erode cracks will develop and cause damage, and if not detected will cause priceless damage to us spiritually and effect those around us.
There are key spiritual principles to protect our faith. God has given us infallible assurances in his word. The key to strength is knowing Gods’ word. Neglecting our relationship with God dulls our spiritual senses, and we begin to conduct ourselves in ways that do not reflect love and faith. As Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 13:1, love gives of the ability to reason with intentional actions that reflect God, Love displays our devotion to God.
