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.

As I have been doing I would ask to please keep the areas affected by the recent 6.2 magnitude earthquake in Italy in your prayers. Sadly there are many people who have been affected by this natural disaster. It has been a few days since the earthquake has hit and the chance of any survivors still being trapped in the rubble alive is dwindling. Please keep anyone that may be trapped and all the people who lost their life and their families in your prayers. Thanks, God bless.

This is certainly some sad news and the last I heard the death toll was over 300, which is terrible to hear. It does sound like the community is coming together and providing support, but there is only so much that can be done and there is certainly much work ahead. They are all certainly in my prayers, and I hope that the road to recovery can begin soon. I will definitely stay tuned and pray for the best. Thanks for sharing and God Bless.

    • Planting Gospel-Centered Churches in Italy

      Throughout the book of Acts, Luke describes the unstoppable progress of the gospel. And he ends the book with Paul preaching in a Roman prison. It’s an unusual but powerful ending, in that Luke shows us the triumphant power of the gospel.
      The messenger is in chains, but the Word of God is not bound. Luke’s ending communicates something like: this book is finished, but the mission isn’t. We get to be part of this ongoing mission. We get to join the drama of spreading the good news to the nations, and planting churches in every nook and cranny of the world. God replaces the messengers, but this life-changing message continues to be preached. In Italy, where Paul finally reached in Acts 28, many faithful men and women are continuing this mission today. One of the men helping lead a missional movement in Italy is J. D. Gilmore, who’s with us on the podcast today. You can listen to this podcast episode here.

    • Italy’s New Leaders: ‘Free Ride Is Over’ for Migrants

      Italy’s New Leaders: ‘Free Ride Is Over’ for Migrants   One of Italy’s new breed of leaders is laying down the law to the migrants who have flooding the southern European nation in recent years. “The free ride is over,” Matteo Salvini, Italy’s recently named interior minister, warned migrants at a rally on Saturday, according to The Associated Press. “It’s time to pack your bags.” On Friday, hours after he was sworn in, Salvini made his position, and that of the government in which he serves, crystal clear.   Rest of the article is at the link: https://www.westernjournal.com/italys-new-leaders-free-ride-is-over-for-migrants/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=conservativevideos&utm_campaign=weeklyam&utm_content=libertyalliance
