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.

Do Something for Someone

Recommended Posts

Not because you have to. Not for the adjuration of the crowd, not for personal gain, not for self-satisfaction; not even for the blessings of our Heavenly Father.  Then why should I do something for someone?  Because it is the right thing to do, or, as the Bible teaches us, it is the righteous thing to do.  Our Heavenly Father, out of the kindness of His heart, out of His compassion and His love for us does a million things for His children everyday. We should be like Him. Have you ever had your prayers answered?  Do something for somebody and our Heavenly Father, Who sees things secretly, will reward thee openly.  The point being, our Heavenly Father is good, just, loving and kind, and we should endeavor to be like Him.

He even does good things for those who are not his children.

Good post, Mr Honigman!

Really, today are lot of people who call themselves Christians but for them Christianity is just nice words and philosophy...

We have to reveal God's love and care in practical way. It is written in James "Faifh is dead without actions".

God bless you!
