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.

Way of the Spirit

Hi to everyone,

Recommended Posts

I simply cannot remember a time when I didn't believe and trust in God and Christ.

From sometime back in the early 40's I attended the Sunday school of a nearby Undenominational chapel, and moved up through the young men's group until my faith was examined by the Pastor and I was Baptised by immersion in 1950.

Since then I have moved about in the UK and abroad and I now make it my practice to attend whichever church is nearest to wherever God has led me (provided they will accept me to a reasonable level of fellowship).

But that doesn't always work out, and at 80 years of age I am often obliged to seek my fellowship on Christian forums.

(I run one of my own but I like to spread my fellowship as widely as possible.)

I prefer not to involve in too much Theological contention and prefer to concentrate on 'Prayer, Praise, Worship, and spiritual uplift.

More than that can come as I post.

Peace be with you all .....Mike (WotS)
