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.

Missouri's purposed law

Recommended Posts

A Missouri law maker has purposed a bill that from now on a Domestic Partnership License would replace the current Marriage License.

 

This has met with some support and some violent "no way". This once again is an attack on the Church that believes in Covenant Marriages in the Church.

 

What are your thoughts?

A state should honor God, just like any country, any govt. etc. We are called to support laws that honor Christ and the Word. If and when laws are passed, however, that are contrary to our biblical worldview we can and should do two things: Pray (and even act) that the laws return to a God honoring way, and ultimately we remind ourselves that this is not our real home. It should be no surprise, in a way, when those opposed to God act like they are actually opposed to God. Hopefully it will be a wake up call for the residents of Missouri to make sure to elect leaders that will truly represent Christ.
