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 son's salvation

Recommended Posts

My son is 11 years old. We have bible study every night with his sister. I'm praying God will bring him to a saving knowledge of his son Jesus. My son's name is Jeremiah.

Hi brother, is there reason to doubt that he is already saved? I do love the idea of daily bible study, and I will pray for it to be successful in his spiritual growth.

He has never accepted Christ into his heart. We have talked about it.

I'll sure be praying for Jeremiah. Many times with young people there can be the rebellion of submitting to authority even if they do believe something. God bless you brother for your profession to your children in Jesus' name.

Be assured of my prayers for your son, asking the Lord to draw him close to Himself into a personal relationship with Himself. May God fill your home with His peace and comfort.

I have a special place in my prayer notes that offer up prayers for the unredeemed . I'm sure to include your son as well as many more God may bring to  a sovereign saving knowledge of Jesus in salvation .   M

It would seem from what you say that there is every likelihood that God intends to do just that, in your son's own good time. You may be thinking there is some urgency about what you want him to do, because you are concerned for his eternal welfare. That is adequately covered by God Himself, just trust that that is so and do not pressure Jeremiah to do anything other than be attentive to God's voice when the time comes. God has a covenant with you and that covenant contains the promise that your children will enter a covenant relationship with Him on the same terms you yourself did. Meanwhile Jeremiah is covered by God's with you. Jeremiah will eventually take responsibility for his own walk with God by faith in the Atoning Power of Jesus Christ His Son. It may take a lifetime for Jeremiah to fulfill his covenant responsibility and place his trust for salvation, in His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, rather than relying on his supposed, 'knowledge of good and evil', stolen illicitly in that 'garden', back in the ancient mists of time but God has it in hand nonetheless.

 

God is on your side. Love your son, as God loves you, and you and him cannot go wrong. Teach by love, example and regular discussion. Ps.119:27.

Jeremiah, what a beautiful name.  Sweet Jesus bless this boy with your grace and love, and help his father to be a loving example and motivator to receive you into his heart.  I command it in Jesus name.  Amen.

We can always pray for the unsaved. But in the end it's God's choice. The unsaved are always included in my prayers. Praying for your son .   M

    • The offer of salvation through faith is given to ""all"" who believe. This belief results in eternal salvation:

      The offer of salvation through faith is given to ""all"" who believe. This belief results in eternal salvation:   For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to ""all"" people. Titus 2:11   For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that ""whoever"" believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:16)   For this is the will of My Father, that ""everyone"" who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day." (John 6:40)     This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires ""all"" men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:3-4)     The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for ""all"" to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)     For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of ""all"" men, especially of believers. (1 Timothy 4:10)     For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to ""all"" men, (Titus 2:11)And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw ""all"" men to Myself." (John 12:32)     So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to ""all"" men. (Romans 5:18)     For the death that He died, He died to sin, once for ""all""; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. (Romans 6:10) For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive. (1 Corinthians 15:22)     For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for ""all"", therefore all died; and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. (2 Corinthians 5:15)     For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins, and then for the sins of the people, because this He did once for ""all"" when He offered up Himself. (Hebrews 7:26-27)     But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation; and not through the blood of goats and calves, but through His own blood, He entered the holy place once for ""all"", having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:11-12)     By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for ""all"". (Hebrews 10:10)     For Christ also died for sins once for ""all"", the just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; (1 Peter 3:18)

    • How Christmas Confronts Our Self-Salvation Projects

      “He has spanned eternity to come among us, to be born as one of us, and now he calls us to come close to Jesus Christ. . . . God is calling us to turn away from every self-salvation project and to enter into this salvation by bowing to him as Lord. ” — David Short Text: Luke 2:8–20 Preached: December 24, 2013 Location: St. John’s Vancouver Anglican Church You can listen to this episode of TGC Word of the Week here.
