Christian 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.

As I have been doing I would ask to please keep the areas affected by the recent 6.2 magnitude earthquake in Italy in your prayers. Sadly there are many people who have been affected by this natural disaster. It has been a few days since the earthquake has hit and the chance of any survivors still being trapped in the rubble alive is dwindling. Please keep anyone that may be trapped and all the people who lost their life and their families in your prayers. Thanks, God bless.

This is certainly some sad news and the last I heard the death toll was over 300, which is terrible to hear. It does sound like the community is coming together and providing support, but there is only so much that can be done and there is certainly much work ahead. They are all certainly in my prayers, and I hope that the road to recovery can begin soon. I will definitely stay tuned and pray for the best. Thanks for sharing and God Bless.
