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.

    Prayers please

    update....thank you, all of you for your prayers. I went to church today, and although hard to put into words, was touched by the Holy Spirit of God! rather like a white heat in my heart, I was completely blown away and stood there with my eyes closed during a song.

    Prayers please

    I type this in complete humility. I am not fit to be called a Christian. I am full of doubts, unable to pray, have read my bible only 2 times in the last month. Haven't been to church as much. I have lots of struggles with spirituality, God knows all of this. I know God exists but am at war in my soul. I am drawn to things not Christlike, yet they make sense to me, total sense. I am the sow returning to her vomit.Please have mercy on me brothers and sisters. Do not judge me harshly. God is my only judge. I only feel enlightened when I feel I am in control of my life. Christianity seems bound together with guilt and duty and no true feeling of living by Grace. This makes me feel like I am less of a Christian. I cannot pray, my mind wanders. yet I long to know God's love. I cannot share these feelings with anyone. There is much I cannot post here for worry of being thrown off this forum. I want to know Peace and certaintly of peace in the afterlife, but I doubt too much. The divided church and actions of 'Christians' fuels my doubt and turning away. Please pray that God would speak clearly to me and help me as I feel he is not doing either at the moment. Thankyou

  6. with much genuine respect, I'm sure they have incubators William, but due to her tiny frame the heat would need to be kept close to her body straight after birth. Rather like the 'tin-foil' blankets put on hypothermia patients. A touching story, glad she survived.
  7. :confused::p I'm speechless

    Hi a brief hello from me

    Hi and thanks for the welcome. I juggle a full time job with a busy household, so I will post when I can. I am going to familiarise myself with the site, then, when I feel ready I will explain ^^^ where I am at. to answer some questions, I am church of england (protestant) and I currently attend a church regularly (3 out of 4) sundays. I have been there for 9 years. Before that I was not attending church or anything remotely Christian for about 14 years!

    Hi a brief hello from me

    Hi my name is waterseeker! I am a pretty confused Christian at the moment, but more of that elsewhere. I am a female in her 40's who has a history of being a prodigal son. I am joining this forum to try and clarify what I believe or don't believe. Hi everyone:)
