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.

David Robertson on the Cost of Cultural Engagement

Recommended Posts

Cost_of_Cultural_Engagement-300x128.jpg

David_Robertson-295x300.jpgDavid Robertson, pastor of St. Peter’s Free Church of Scotland in Dundee, knows the cost of Christian courage. A trustee of the Solas Centre for Public Christianity, Robertson writes pieces for newspapers and magazines, and, through social media and his blog, The Wee Flea, he engages people coming from all kinds of viewpoints on issues at the intersection of the gospel and the culture. He is the author of The Dawkins Letters: Challenging Atheist Myths and Magnificent Obsession: Why Jesus Is Great.

In my conversation with Robertson, we talked about how the title for his blog came from his engagement with Richard Dawkins on atheism, what it’s like to pastor Robert Murray McCheyne’s former church, dealing with accusations that he isn’t nice, and the courage that contending for the gospel in a post-Christian culture requires.
