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.

New to the Christian Forum World!

Recommended Posts

Hello there! This is my first time exploring a Christian forum at all. I grew up in a Southern Baptist home, we "re-classified" ourselves as non-denominational as I grew up. My dad was military and we moved all over the world, so finding churches was often a challenge. We lost my mom six years ago, and thus began a major struggle with my personal faith. I have come to realize that I absolutely do still believe in Jesus, but I also have a lot of mending to do on my end as far as my relationship with Him goes. I currently attend a non-denominational church in my town periodically, but need to get back in the habit of it being a regular thing. I am hoping to find people I can learn from, who have been through similar circumstances and rebuilt their faith, and hopefully get to the point where I can encourage others as well. I know this is going to be a fight, but I am willing to put the effort in. I thank you all in advance for having me, and for the good things to come!

Hi whysewserious, WELCOME TO CF :) I'm sure you'll be able to find answers to many/most of your questions, and find some great online fellowship here as well. I also agree with you about church, the most important thing of all is for you to be in regular fellowship again locally.

 

I look forward to seeing you around the boards here and growing in Christ together with you.

 

God bless you! (Numbers 6:24-26)

Thank you for the warm welcomes! So far I have been very engaged and if I can make this a supplement to other activities in my walk, I think it could be a positive change. I appreciate the encouragement and discussions thus far and anticipate good things to come.
