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.

2 more years to go either to ditch him or continue with him.  

Just curious Farber, but if you ditched the president what would be your reasons for doing that ? At first I had a negative view of Donald Trump. I felt that he was too insulting and exhibited pride and arrogance over people . Like "Lying Ted '" and "Little Marco "

" Crooked Hillary" (That one I didn't mind ) . But as time went by I begin to realize that he was a successful businessman and had to be stern in his dealings . Now I picture him as truly wanting to serve the American people . The Wall tells me that he really wants to protect the people from foreign invaders ,but has no vested personal interest in it other than that . He needs the money to protect the eighty eight percent of our citizens that want the wall . Now I am pro Trump and will have no problem voting for him in the 2020 election .     M

 He's okay I think. Not perfect but I think he is okay. The media hates him...like over 90% of the coverage is negative. Can't open up the Yahoo home page or MSN for that matter and there is almost always a stupid attack on him. Hardy ever do I see anything positive.

The man is under attack from the liberal democrats because they wanted a socialist government and never got it because Hillary Clinton ,their champion , lost the election. They have been crying over it ever since he won and Hillary didn't . Now I think it is a good time to stand behind him and allow him to continue going forward with his plan to Make America Great Again. He has done some remarkable things for this nation . And people are catching on to the obnoxious tactics of the democrats because they are sounding more and more like they have no other purpose than to see this nation ruled by a dictator . God forbid that the poor and uneducated will believe the ruthless democrats that actually want such a person to lead this country.

 I think I mentioned this before, but here's my take on one aspect of all this...

 

 Now I know I am using generalities but so be it. When Conservatives lose an election they get sad and upset, but they think of how they lost (yeah the blame game is part of it) and then how they can go about winning the next time. When Liberals lose they get sad and upset and go about either protesting the election, accusing it of being a fraud or stolen, or rioting in the streets - smashing windows, breaking things, etc. Total crybabies.

 When I had full access to YouTube I was really surprised the way people acted when Clinton lost in 2016. Then I realized a couple of things. First, they went to NYC to have this huge victory party. Hey, many (virtually all?) of the polls said she was going to win, while quite a number of polls, commentators, pundits, etc., said it was going to be a land slide. The party was set, balloons, booze, and the anticipation that this was going to be a great party time night...like New Year's Eve in NY. When the ball falls and everyone counts down and the New Year arrives the place goes wild. People looked forward to the same kind of euphoria the precise moment it would come across the wire "Clinton Wins!" - let's clap, dance, sing, kiss people, get wasted and party till dawn. However, it turned out to be a total shock when the results started rolling in. Instead of a massive victory it was a huge egg in their face defeat. I could ramble on and on but you get the picture. Second, many Conservatives (numbers vary) have a belief in G/god. Not all are Christians, but they do have some kind of belief in G/god. So for example if my candidate loses, I do what I mentioned about Conservatives in the first paragraph. But more importantly I also say to myself that God is still on His throne - that will never change. Jesus rules forever. He is coming back one day in eternal and resplendent glory to receive me and all other Christians. With this thought and others like it when a Liberal wins I also take heart in the fact that the triumphing of the wicked is short (Job 20:5).

 But when a Liberal loses it is another story. Many don't believe G/god or if they do He (or for them She?) is not that important. The G/god that they do believe in though, like true Communists, is the government. That is why they go so crazy when an election is lost. It's as if their G/god was desecrated in an unholy act of suffering a political defeat. Since this is their ultimate allegiance it is a bitter pill to swallow seeing their G/god incur such an ignominious deicide. This is why you see videos of people just screaming their heads off in a manic (and yes, Satanic) frenzy. Look what happened when certain people realized that their goddess was being rejected - they were filled with rage (Acts 19:28) and kept shouting for 2 hours (Acts 19:34) the same thing over and over and over again.

 After the election, and in addition to flying off the handle, people whined and whined (they're still whining), they cried, screamed, etc. I know from reports and from someone I happen to know that they had to seek (and still seek) therapy because of it.

 Pathetic.

 Sunscreen can greatly help. Try exercising or doing family activities in the shade or morning/evening times. Problem for me is that I am a delicacy for the mosquitos. 😩

You don't need to worry about leaving words out of your prayers.  Romans 8:26 says, "Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words."  None of us prays as we should but because of the Holy Spirit's intercession our prayers are presents to God as if they were perfect.

Please pray for me to trust in the Lord Yeshua whenever I feel afraid about something. Please pray that I would have a healthy fear of God and that I do not listen to everything that my earthly father has said either in the past or present. Please pray for my earthly father's salvation. Please pray that I am led by the Holy Spirit in all parts of my life. Please pray that my earthly father is also led by the Holy Spirit in all parts of his' life.

Please pray that I am careful about resisting sin, that I do not hurt my body or neck in the process. Earlier I was shaking my head left to right in order to resist temptation with two hands flat on the side of my face. Please do not do this as it can be dangerous.

I read all your post here from the beginning so I could get a better idea what to pray for.

 

I will pray that you stop using the words always and never in your prayers and thoughts when it comes to yourself and others. Sinless perfection is not possible in this life and if that is your expectation you will always be miserable and disappointed. That is why we have an advocate with the father.

 

"If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

 

As to your insecurities and fears while they are often legitimate you seem to be taking them to an irrational extreme. You need to let God be God and leave these things in his hands. God is sovereign and there is not and never will be one stray molecule in this universe. Go to the scriptures and remember his promises. Read the psalms. Read Job. God doesn't always give an explanation for what he does and we have no right to demand it from him. We do not know the end of a matter or what the final chapter will bring and we're not meant to. God is infinitely wiser than us and does all things for his own glory and if we are truly in him for our own good. Our duty is to accept the outcome; not to figure it out.

 

"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Rom 8:28

 

If you truly believe in Christ and his gospel this verse applies to you.

 

Resisting temptation is not about shaking your head left with two hands flat on the side of your face or in any way causing yourself harm. Most of the time it is about not putting yourself in a place of temptation in the first place.

Thank you for all of your prayers. Please pray for my relationship with my girlfriend and please pray that God heals me of my acid reflux which a doctor who is not my regular doctor that I scheduled an appointment with has prescribed me medication but I know that I need to see my regular doctor which I will on Tuesday. Thank you all once again and May the Lord Jesus Bless you all. I am trusting in God to be healed.
