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.

MY PRESENTATION - VOLTAPE

Recommended Posts

My first intervention:  I am a newcomer and pray for illumination.  Today, December 5, 2018 is my 54th anniversary of marriage – (I am 83 and my wife 77) I suddenly felt I needed to put an order in my spiritual life – it’s all in disarray.  I am from Lima, Peru.  As in most Roman Catholic countries, everybody is– let’s call it by default – Catholic, so you are baptised, confirmed, go to confession, make your first communion and go to Mass for some years and finally put it off. Masses are  so void. Vatican Council II imparted a new liveliness to the musty medieval Mass but of course priests don’t take advantage of it – there is now one lesson from the old Testament – A psalm – a reading from the New  Testament and finally the Gospel.  They are all related among them.  With such material, a protestant pastor would deliver a magnificent sermon, but priests prefer to bore parishioners with talks about general matters for about 15 minutes.  Add to this that loudspeakers are not efficient in most churches and you can hardly hear!  For some months now I’m trying to find a spiritual path that will satisfy my spiritual yearnings.  About 30 years ago I used to visit the Christian and Missionary Alliance with my teen age son and daughter.  We three received Jesus there but somehow we stopped going.   Now we are sort of deists.  Please help me.

Hello Voltape, welcome to Christforums. I hope you'll enjoy your stay here. If your spirit is hungry, perhaps you had better feed it.

Lord, we pray for this lovely seeking couple to be given direction in the Holy Name of JESUS! I pray your marriage will be blessed with your open hearts. In your search, get a decent study Bible, and start in the book of James. It is short. Then move to John and get deep. Read your Psalms if you are hurting. Geez, i should take my own advice. Ya see Voltape, you already helped someone here!
