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.

What’s Your Golden Calf?

Recommended Posts

Golden Calf

“This text is about you. It’s not just about Israel. This is about your biggest problem. Somewhere along the way in your story, you also have this unarticulated logic of ‘Let me worship some other gods, too. Let me diversify. I don’t know how much I can really trust you, God, I don’t know that I can really trust you with my whole heart. So I’m going to worship some other gods.’ You fashioned a golden calf. ” — Justin Buzzard

Text: Exodus 32

Preached: June 24, 2018
