    I have asked myself how do I increase in love and the power. So I am not lacking or diminishing in God's word. God's power does not work in you, if you don't work the word to get the love of Christ, and the power is in his word to manifest the power to work by believing and walking in faith. I have faith in the works because of the word of God.
