Christian 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.

Hi All - Hope to Learn More

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone. I joined the forum hoping to strengthen my journey towards Christ. Having lived a couple of decades and growing-up in a Christian family, something always seems to be holding me back from the consistency required to get closer to God. I take one step forward then two steps back. Hopefully this community will bring me closer like the type of faith I've had back when I was a child. 

 

Thanks all,

    • Is thre really a Pre-Trib Rapture? I hope so....but....

      The Rapture Verses Let’s get one thing clear up front – I do not believe the body of Christ is going through any part of the coming tribulation.  With that being said I am unsure on just how we get out of here before the tribulation starts.  This article will not be an in depth study but just a quick glance at the issue.           The reason I believe the church will not go thru the tribulation because the tribulation has a definite Jewish flavor.  It is an extension of the Old Testame

    • Don’t Put Your Hope in Date Night

      Running a nonprofit ministry geared toward moms of young children means our inbox continually fills with questions about parenting and marriage. One of the most frequent is, “How do you do date night?” As married moms of littles, we understand firsthand where this is coming from. Like our podcast listeners, we look for reasons to hire a babysitter and spend one-on-one time with our spouses. Out-of-the-house date night without children in tow feels like the secret ingredient to a healthy marriag
