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.

  5. I had an idea when fire hit the wine country heads would roll. For 25 years, PG&E has recognized its top volunteers with an award named for a former chairman and CEO. PG&E will donate $5,000 to the nonprofit organization of each winner’s choice. I pay for power not for some one else's choice of non-profit SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — The San Francisco Giants and PG&E celebrate another "green" milestone at AT&T Park. A recent lighting project resulted in a home run of energy savings for AT&T Park and the Giants. In partnership with PG&E, the ballpark recently upgraded more than 556 traditional light bulbs to new energy efficient LED lights. The switch resulted in an energy savings of 290,466 kilowatt hours during the regular baseball season, which is the same amount of energy it takes to power 30 homes. The upgrade also resulted in a rebate of about $260,000. That is my payment for power they are using to rebate millionaires Matching Gift Information During PG&E's annual giving campaign, Pacific Gas & Electric matches donations to select nonprofits which include: Higher education institutions (colleges & universities) K-12 school and foundations Environmental organizations And select other nonprofits Employees can request matching gifts on up to $1,000 of donations.

  6. A way way ....smaller thing about PG&E that bugs me is they have a monopoly yet they spend $$$ on advertising. As if people had a choice.

    Welcome 🙂
  8. Bruce Jenner is a public person. He plastered his name and life style all over the place. Many building have the 10 Commandments posted on them . Are they considered a negative ? “Bruce Jenner is still a man. Homosexuality is still sin. The culture may change. The Bible does not.”

    What's for Supper?

    to night New York steak baked tater steamed broccoli . Simple food. Story from about 50 years ago.. Often on payday i would get 2 steaks hefty t bone or porter house Jr about 5 years would get one filet Our daughter about 3 and i split the new york side I am not much on steak. One day this kid eating filet started asking things like why cant i have a real steak. You do have a real one... a bit later I want a real steak after a few times i am getting the drift he is missing something.. I start asking him what he means .. MOM a real steak you know one with a bone in it like dad's .. The kid then got most the new york side WITH the bone and our daughter had the filet I would rather have a cheeseburger then steak any day.

  12. @Hieronymus 2 little girls growing up in the same family . A small gift to Sally a cookie a warm hug,a smile, a few minutes of one on one time .( John 3 16) Sally would do what ever was asked of her and try to do more. Getting the attention of the other was a challenge in it's self. Head strong on the go Some times the knock up side head with the 2 by 4 and she would say ' what ya want.' Going to the dump was a fun thing ya got to throw stuff in this big burning pit. The sides sorta slightly slid down and ya just knew you were too close. Then came the 2 by 4 from mom .. You dont really want to go to hell do ya Beck ? Jud 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
  13. The same way a herto person does, do not act on the thoughts . Do not self encourage the office affair .. Same as the person who covets the pretty house across town. Lord forgive me i am thankful for what i have

    Hello and welcome to Christforums . As you most likely thought here is the Bible quote. Joh_20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. There are many questions not unlike yours i can not figure out I have learned over the years to trust in Him.
