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.

I sure hope that you all had as wonderful a Christmas as I did today! It was very nice seeing my Dad's Uncle John and my Uncle Joe this afternoon. Lots of love, food and conversation went into the joy of today. My church had its Christmas Eve Service yesterday and today, nothing was scheduled, but the worship was meaningful and today I just felt the need to pray a prayer remembering my Baptism and to contemplate the wonder of god coming to us in the flesh, which He then proceeded to give for the life of the world. Such wonderful grace!
