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.

    • Praying for people to turn to Jesus

      I'd like to offer prayers for all who are hardened of heart, and refuse to hear the Gospel's positive message. It is the most important message any of us will ever hear, and I pray for those who prefer the world's agenda and voice, to Jesus. It's heavy on my heart, this morning. 😞
