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.

Pray for the gospel

"O Lord, command what you will and give what you command" - St. Augustine

 

Lord, I pray that You would fill us with hope and joy and expectation that You have the power to put Your hand on us, and grant us the will to do what You command. You have made it plain: We are responsible to do what You tell us to do. But we know that in ourselves we do not have the will to do it. And so we cry with Augustine, 'Lord, command what You will, and give what You command.' Leave us not to ourselves. Have mercy. In Jesus' name, Amen.”

 

God bless,

William

O God, in my life, I feel sad when I see that there are many people living a painful, wondering, struggling life. They badly need Your Salvation. May You work on them? May Your gospel come to them earlier. May Your Spirit move more people to come before You and receive Your salvation and blessing. Only in this way can they break free from their troubles and pain.Amen.

 

God bless
