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.

Hello everyone

Recommended Posts

My name is Marisella and I'm from Albania. Around here women are treated fairly poorly, and I came here to search for a safe haven. I have no one else to talk to and it's really difficult sometimes...I mean...really difficult. Thank you and sorry if you don't want to listen to my "burdens". I will understand...

Hi Marisella, WELCOME TO CF! I glad you found us :RpS_thumbsup:

 

I'm sorry to hear that you (& other women in Albania) are treated poorly! As for finding someone to talk with about your burdens, you've definitely come to the right place, cause that's what we do here :RpS_smile:

 

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

p.s. - here's a quote from one of my very favorite theologians, Dr. J. I. Packer, that may help in your search for the meaning of life. He's also the author of Knowing God, which has to be one of the top five modern Christian classics written in the last century or so (a must-read, for sure)!
