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.

Remember Grace

I just want to say that as we discuss End Times we need to remember that this is not an essential of the faith. We need to give grace and understanding to differing views. Unless the view is completely heretical, we should be respectful and treat each other with dignity.


That is not to say that we ignore the Scriptures. No. By all means, we should always strive for truth and we should never be so dogmatic in certain areas that we are not open to correction. But sometimes we must agree to disagree and still act with Christian love.


I am NOT saying that this has not been happening here so please don't misunderstand. I just think that with certain topics this is always a good reminder.


In Christ,
