Community 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.

Jackie Hill Perry on the Gospel for Sinners

Recommended Posts


I interact with a lot of women who want to teach the Bible, but something holds them back. They seem to be waiting for a different stage of life, waiting until they are invited, waiting for the right situation, waiting until the kids are grown, waiting until they know everything they think they need to know to be able to stand up and teach.

Not Jackie Hill Perry. Perry is an incredible person, a godly woman, and a really compelling Bible teacher. I loved getting to sit on the front row and listen to her open up the book of Deuteronomy and teach it at The Gospel Coalition 2018 Women’s Conference. But I enjoyed, even more, getting to sit down with her to talk about how God has saved her, is sanctifying her, and is equipping her to teach the Bible. We talked about her mentors (“the Pipe”), her method (ask questions of the text), her tools (her phone),] as well as her new book, Gay Girl, Good God, in which she says she is “leveraging my story so you can see the gospel rightly.”
