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.

How the Gospel (Uniquely) Speaks to Shame

Recommended Posts

open window

Shame is a biblical issue, a culturally relevant issue, and a universally personally issue. In this workshop, Mary Willson argues that in order to appreciate the full benefits of the gospel, we must understand how it addresses shame. No other philosophy or religion provides the sort of holistic remedy for the pain of shame that we find in the gospel.

Willson explains, “When we orient ourselves to our Father’s gaze, we are no longer desperate for the approval of others—we don’t look for acceptance from people who are destructive forces in our lives or from relationships that are unhealthy or ungodly.”

    • 6 Lessons from Gladys Aylward About Gospel Success

      Have you longed for God to use you on the foreign mission field? Is there a specific area of the world on your heart? Perhaps you feel convinced it’s God’s will for you to serve there, but he hasn’t sent you yet—although you’re willing. Do you wonder if it’s because you’re unqualified for the task? Or if he would rather use someone else? Gladys Aylward probably had similar feelings. Born in Britain in the early 1900s, she became a Baptist missionary to China and served among poor children for 2

    • Feeling Unmoved by the Gospel

      About one year ago I gave myself to Christ. It was a pretty abrupt conversion where I went from being a pretty agnostic person never thinking I would ever be a religious person to becoming very fervent in my studies of the Christian faith. I went from not even knowing what the Bible was about to reading the Bible hours a day, studying theology books, and constantly thinking/praying for God to keep growing my faith.    Although I feel that the Holy Spirit has been working in my life and

      Whether it’s the Super Bowl or any Saturday in college football, you’ve probably heard it—the postgame praise of God for a thrilling win. It’s a rite in the liturgy of much American sport, almost as scripted as a responsive reading. Fans are conditioned to expect that many victorious athletes, approached by microphone-clutching reporter, will breathe out glory to God for unrivaled success. As Christians living in a culture increasingly averse to the gospel, we exult in their opportunity to spea
