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.

Is this a good thing? What is the church sending? What is a "Christmas season"?

Wonderful! They are doing as Christ said we are to do. This is what we should be doing, caring for those in prison. Then I ask what those children without a father, are we not called to help them as well. What about the Orphans, and widows? How about single moms in your church? Just how much of what Jesus said are we doing?
