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.

Prayer request for my exodus out of California

Recommended Posts

Staff

Hello, 

 

After 3 years of planning I am moving! My PC is already boxed up and my internet ISP is scheduled to be disconnected. I plan to hit the road for the red state Idaho on the 28th. I will not be reconnected to the internet nor a functional website staff member until sometime in April. Please direct your support questions to other staff such as Becky and Origen. 

 

I ask for your prayers not only in safely migrating from Ca to Id but also in healing and mentally detoxing. I must say that I am bitter at the moment having lived in the heart of liberalism for near 8 years. The world around me is seen through darkly veiled eyes. My migration I hope will provide a fresh start and an environment which is friendly to our Christian worldview. Conservative politics and the Christian worldview are supposedly as complementary as Idaho mashed potatoes and gravy!

 

Please be aware that my limited participation is due to being limited to a mobile cellphone device. 

 

Thanks in advance for your prayers on behalf of my wife @Trysch and I.

 

God bless,

William

Oh, and please pray for remaining staff during my abscence. I already see Origen is toasting drinks in response to other members. My spidey sense says some partying might occur.

Best wishes to you and yours, @William .  I know moving out of California (to Texas) was a really good move for us, even though the area we were living was probably not as liberal as where you are moving from.

 

I pray the church you will be attending is as supportive as we have found ours to be.

Yes, by all means you have my prayers for a safe journey and that God will give you the faith and courage to shed the unpleasant memories  that your present state has left you with. Are you going to pastor an established church ? Praying that you will have a willing and devout congregation to receive the Word of our Lord and His Truth as clearly written in the Holy Bible. It is amazing that we have such evidence for the biblical record all around us. I envision the dry and mountainous places in the western part of our country and can see the evidence of the Great Flood just by imagining what it must have looked like under water and now what it looks like as dry land. The evidence is clear . Its there . Again, prayers and thinking of you and your family.    M

I arrived last Thursday in Nampa and today marks 1 week. I have finished unpacking and now await my internet connection Friday morning.

Moving is the worst. Or maybe unpacking. Packing might be worse, because you have to sort through stuff, purge and then pack. lol 

 

Glad to see you're nearly done? :)

I say we all pretend like we're moving, and then we'll get rid of all the unnecessary junk that we have been hoarding. 😅

      Well.  I never really expected to post here, but sometimes things change.  I just learned that I have colon cancer.  We don't how advanced it may be, but it isn't looking good. God clearly has a new assignment for us and we want to live it well.  I ask for prayer that my wife and I use this opportunity well to glorify God, strengthen Believers and spread the Gospel. Hopefully, we will be fine and back to work soon.   Meanwhile....we may be looking for a place to stay near Virginia Maso

    • Prayer request as I decide what to do re: my career

      I've been listening to some podcasts recently by Timothy Keller, a Presbyterian minister, who is just awesome, imo. He talks a lot about how God doesn't really interfere with our decision making, instead, if we follow Him and have Jesus as the center of our heart - then our decision making will keep that in mind. We won't wish to make decisions that are immoral, for example. God is most concerned with us, having us belong to Him. Having us love and follow Him, and treat others with that same lov

      For the last month I have been acutely ill. My kidneys became very infected with what appears with more kidney stones, one or more is stuck in my bladder and unable to pass.  Last summer I experienced something like this and after two surgeries the stones were removed, However there complications that changed my life. In 2003 I was treated for prostrate cancer with radiation. Over the years scar tissue grew on my sphincter muscle. In 2013 cancer had returned but it is slow growing. Last Septembe
