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.

God IS Love

Recommended Posts

God's Love is a powerful, Spiritual force. It urges and motivates us to serve Him. His Love is real, genuine, the highest and best.

 

The Love of Jesus reaches deeper than the deepest ocean and reaches beyond the vastness of space. It is immeasurable, limitless. He delivered us from our arch enemy at the Cross.

 

His Love is relentless, freeing each Believer from sin and death. He Loves us! He seeks the lost; His outreach is before birth, before conception, just as God's outreach was in Jesus and before His physical birth. Should one fail to turn to Him before one dies, Jesus’ Love weeps over that grave. He is not willing that any should perish.

 

A Mother’s Love is strong and fervent, even to giving her life for her child. A man may give his life for a friend. Such great love is love indeed, yet even that does not approach the vast, limitless Love of God! His Love impels, stimulates, excites and incites us. O! that we would respond to Him today! He knows you! Do you know Him in return? Have you confessed His Love, His Amazing Grace?

 

You may do so, right now, today! Bible at the ready? Romans 10:8-13, Romans 8:1, John 5:24.

 

Love so Amazing, Love so Divine

His Love for you throughout all time

Shining through Jesus' sacrifice at Calvary

Who could neglect the One so Mighty?

 

God's Love we cannot describe

Not even the greatest earthly scribe

He reaches out from beyond the stars

Yet comes to you where you are.

 

Respond to His Love this very day

Follow Him always, in His Embrace

His Great Love with others share

Their heavy burdens God will bear.

    • Thank God Without Ceasing

      John Hendryx     We affirm with the Bible that whosoever believes in Jesus Christ (without exception) will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). That has never been at issue. Problem is, no one is naturally willing to submit to the humbling terms of the gospel, apart from regenerating grace (Deut 29:4, 30:6; Ezek 36:26; John 1:13; 5:21, 6:63-65, Rom 8:7, 1 Cor 2:14). Indeed, God commands all people everywhere to repent and believe (Acts 17:30), so it is man's responsibility, but
