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.

Grateful to God that I am still young

Recommended Posts

Since it is early in this New Year, I just wanted to share that I am grateful to God that I still look young and I am still young being born in May 14th, 1996 (I will be 23 later this year). I believe other people have thought I looked younger than I chronologically am and its true. One time at Hometown Buffet my dad and me met a fellow believer and I think I was talking to her about something and I said about How old do you think I am and she thought I was about 17 or 18 and then I told her I was 20 and she said something like that is must be because of God which is indeed true and I am really grateful to Him for it. I am also grateful to God for everything else in my life.

Having a healthy lifestyle can have such a benefit. Other people just naturally look younger than they are.

 

I am grateful to God that I am in my late 40's. I welcome getting older if the Lord decides in His will to keep me here.. I so look forward to going home (heaven) to be with God, the angels and fellow believers.

    • Thank God Without Ceasing

      John Hendryx     We affirm with the Bible that whosoever believes in Jesus Christ (without exception) will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). That has never been at issue. Problem is, no one is naturally willing to submit to the humbling terms of the gospel, apart from regenerating grace (Deut 29:4, 30:6; Ezek 36:26; John 1:13; 5:21, 6:63-65, Rom 8:7, 1 Cor 2:14). Indeed, God commands all people everywhere to repent and believe (Acts 17:30), so it is man's responsibility, but
