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.

About Kyle Petro

  1. Jesus is our mediator between us and the Father …. Without Christ's work on the cross we would be forever separate from the Father. So we pray through the righteousness of Christ. He who knew no sin, became sin, that we might become the righteousness of God. (2 COR 5: 21) Jesus' very own righteousness is credited to our account, so we pray to Him and through Him to Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit also plays a role. He intercedes for us with groanings that cannot be uttered or understood.(ROM 8:26) When we know not what to pray the Spirit intercedes for us to the Father.
  2. @David Asafu Hello brother, I am encouraged by your bravery and your dedication to finding truth! Jesus is love and brings the message of living Water. Through Him we have life, and life more abundantly. I will pray for you David! I have been to Morocco in training with the US military. You're country welcomed us and treated us as guests! I hold a warm place in my heart for the Moroccan people. I will pray God will use you to be His child and His messenger to the Moroccan people!

    Ask Jesus

    @Matto How do we learn to lean on the Father? It sounds right, and sounds so perfectly peaceful, but I find myself not understanding how to lay everything down and rest in His arms.

    My Journey to Find God

    My name is Kyle. I am a 23 year old former Marine. I have been a "Christian" my whole life, but I feel like I am still learning what that word really means. I was raised in an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church in Toms River, New Jersey. I never questioned the church or my parents. I just played along, and did what I was told to do. when I turned 17 I starting dating a girl in my high school and started to experience some feelings most teenagers do. I began to resent the church, and my parents. I always felt like I was missing out on a real childhood. I began experimenting with alcohol, pornography, and a sexual relationship with my girlfriend at the time. We never had sex, but we engaged in other sexual activity. We thought we were in love and that made it acceptable. She ended up leaving me for another girl, and was impregnated by him. I was very angry and confused. I thought we agreed on the standard of not having sex before marriage. At age 19 I left home to join the Marine Corps. I served for 4 years, and was back and forth with God. I wanted a relationship with him, but I could not seem to build a relationship of substance that lasted longer than two weeks. After my service I came back home. Within a year my grandma passed away and my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. This is where I am now. this is not much of a testimony, but more a sharing of my ever continuing journey. I am still trying to learn what God wants from me, and how to please Him. I desperately need His presence. I seem to consistently fail and sin; then I spiral downward away from God. Only to rally and "fix myself up" and return to God for a short time. My mom is still alive, but I do not know how much time she has left. I found this forum and I felt God could use it to connect me with other seasoned Christians who maybe have been through trials and have grown from them. Please reply and leave me some thoughts and words of wisdom! Thank you and God bless!

    Benji's Testimony

    @Benji I love your testimony! many would have given up on God after what you went through. It is a blessing and an encouragement to see someone go through trial and tribulation and continue to seek God; even after being rejected by "Christians"! God bless you brother.

    Answers to prayer?

    Rob! I love your story! If that happened to me I would just lift my eyes and say "Thank you God!" God can use whatever means he wants to speak to us!
