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.

Please pray for deliverance from anger and hatefulness

Hi

 

Since I became a Christian last year I believe God has helped me overcome depression and immorality but I still struggle with anger and hatefulness. Please pray to God asking him to relieve me from this negativity. Thank you!

I will pray for you. We all face this issue - anger and hatefulness. I myself am not able to control these feelings. May the Good Lord give us strength to overcome our weaknesses. Amen.

Truly "treasuring" God's word in your heart/mind can have more of a profound effect on the sin in your life than you can imagine, 1) because it replaces all the garbage that's in your mind with something FAR better, which helps you think about/dwell on far better things .. cf Philippians 4:8, and 2) because every time you try to sin the HS hits you with several of the verses you've memorized :)

Yours in Christ,

David

p.s. - just FYI, I"m always happy to help with some tips about best practices and how to get started memorizing Scripture.

 

 

 

 

 

"How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Thy word.

Thy word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee"

Psalm119:9,11
