It was God who loved us first and it is his love that grows our faith. As our faith and trust in God grows, he bestows his blessings upon us. In response to his blessings we give him praise and thanks, which deepens God's love for us. This cycle represents the symbiotic relationship between God and us, and it repeats itself over and over again.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. – 2 Peter 1:5-8
