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.

Ukraine - Hundreds of Thousands Take to the Streets to Praise Jesus, Celebrate 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

The streets of Kiev filled with songs of praise and thanks as roughly 200,000 evangelical, Ukrainian Christians gathered to celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

 

"Many traveled from all four provinces there just to be a part of that celebration, to thank God for the freedom to worship, to thank God for the freedom to preach the Gospel in their country, and to celebrate God's faithfulness," Sergey Rakhuba with Mission Eurasia told Mission Network News.

 

The gathering came after Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko signed an order recognizing the anniversary of the Reformation.

 

"It was so exciting to see on the screen of my computer where I was watching young people with so much joy. They glorify God in the midst of their capital. This was the same place where they were protesting just a few years ago fighting for their freedom. But, also, this is the place where many years ago, Communists would force people to demonstrate and propagate Socialism, Atheism, Communism, and other 'isms' in their country."

 

Rakhuba says young people are the key to spreading Protestantism in Ukraine.

 

"That's what Mission Eurasia is doing, working with the next generation, those who take the baton, those who get into the generational gap and take the Gospel to their communities," he says.

 

Young people aren't just spreading the gospel in Ukraine, now they're exporting missionaries throughout the world.

 

"I just talked to a group of young people, they just came to this celebration from their mission trip to Mongolia in China — young Ukrainians who felt like the Holy Spirit was leading them to take the Gospel to Mongolia where they reached thousands of young people through summer camps!"

 

Ukraine may still be in the middle of a war with Russia, but it is growing leaps and bounds spiritually.

 

"Ukraine is still in the midst of war. Eastern Ukraine and territories are still occupied by Russian or pro-Russian separatists. Crimea was annexed by Russia. So yes, Ukraine is struggling politically, economically, but Ukraine is striving today spiritually, pleading to God to bless that nation," Rakhuba says.

Great sight to see all those people celebrating King Jesus and the Reformation, even in the midst of war. Would be cool to see something like this in the US and around the world.

Where Christian faith is tempered like a sword of steel.

 

Amen!
