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.

    • Everyone In US Soaked With Sprinklers As Trump Pulls National Emergency Alarm

      U.S.—Americans received a rude surprise when the entire country was suddenly sprayed with water out of nowhere. It turns out that President Donald Trump had pulled the National Emergency Alarm, and one of the first procedures of a national emergency is to activate sprinklers placed throughout the continental U.S., since the assumption is, if it’s a national emergency, the whole country must be on fire or something.

    • The Shema: YHWH encompasses the Lord Jesus (Deuteronomy 6:4; cf. Mark 12:29)

      Many groups who deny the Lord Jesus is God will cite Deuteronomy 6:4 in affirming that there is only one God. That there is only one God is true, but this passage in no way proves the Lord Jesus is not God. For the very next passage (Deuteronomy 6:5) teaches that the "only one God" is to be worshiped and since the Lord Jesus is properly worshiped this necessitates that YHWH of Deuteronomy 6:4 encompasses the Lord Jesus. Besides the worship of the Lord Jesus other areas such as certain appellat

    • The Church Loved My Daughter to Jesus

      Recently, one of my daughters came to faith in Jesus. She started talking to us and asking questions while driving home from our community groups on Sunday nights. As most conversations about the gospel tend to go, we talked about the character of God, sin, Jesus’s death and resurrection, faith, hope, repentance, and many related issues. We’ve been praying for our daughter since before she was born. We memorized Scripture with her, read her the Bible, sang hymns with her, and catechized her fro

    • Was there an alternative to Jesus' sacrifice?

      Was the sacrifice of Jesus Christ predetermined from the beginning or was there an alternative? Had the Jewish leaders accepted Jesus as the Messiah and crowned Him king, had king Herod accepted to abdicate and to proclaim Jesus as the new king, would Jesus had led all the Jewish people back to their promised land and reigned over them forever without His sacrifice taking place?
