Community 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.

Where the Gospel Meets Burnout

Recommended Posts


Love-Thy-Neighborhood-300x300.jpgAmericans are busy, and people in ministry are often even busier than most. But the unchecked life, even when lived for God, has real consequences. We can’t push the boundaries of our physical limits forever without feeling the effects.

Today’s podcast is one pastor’s story of how service to God—and the resulting burnout—nearly ruined his life. It is an episode of the second season of the Love Thy Neighborhood podcast. Check out Love Thy Neighborhood wherever you listen to podcasts to hear more stories about the intersection of social action and Christian faith.

You can listen to the episode here. Mentioned in this episode: Crosspoint Ministry.
