Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

God bless us, ev'ry one. :O)

Matthew Henry views prayer as a duty. That's correct .But I would like to add that prayer is an honor and a privilege . The truth is that there are very few people who actually have access to the Throne of grace and be able to communicate with the very Creator of Heaven and Earth . Think of it ! Dose the natural man who is without the saving knowledge of God have access to the Throne of God ? No , he cannot access the Throne of Grace because God has nothing to do with the natural man. But He does expect that His own will exercise the privilege of prayer because their lives have everything to do with the words, deeds and actions God has appointed in their lives.   M
