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.

God's richest blessings attend you and may the Holy Spirit continue to guide you throughout your lives. May this Thanksgiving remind us of the greatest Gift of the greatest Giver of them all, our salvation won for us through the death and resurrection of Our Precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thanks be to God that he guided our ancestors to this plentiful land of promise and that He has seen us through every adversity that the Devil, the world and our own sinful flesh has thrown at us. God bless you this Thanksgiving.
