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.

Sing the Psalms

Recommended Posts

Keith Getty and Tim Keller

Tim Keller believes that every emotional condition, every life situation, is covered in the psalms in some way. Thus, whatever our condition, the psalms ought to be always on our lips.

In preparation for the Sing! 2018 conference in Nashville, Keith Getty sat down to talk with Keller about how to incorporate psalms into corporate worship as well as family worship, counseling, and personal prayer. Getty and Keller agree that immersion in the Psalms helps believers become more authentic. The Psalms allow us not only to express our own raw emotion, but also to understand God more authentically. Keller remarks, “If you’re in a relationship with somebody, it’s not authentic to say, ‘I want you to know who I am, but actually I don’t want to know who you are. . . . I want you to be the person I want you to be, not the person you are.'”

You can listen to their conversation here and learn more about the Sing! conference on the Gettys’ website.
