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.

Extraordinary Grace through Ordinary Means

Extraordinary Grace through Ordinary Means

“[God]’s able to take the harsh realities of life in a fallen world and employ them as instruments of redemption. How’s that for grace? You only need the cross to understand that God can take the worst thing ever and make it the best thing ever. Now I think there are thousands of believers who don’t get this. There are thousands of believers who in moments of difficulty are crying out, Where is the grace of God?—and they’re getting it. But it’s not the grace of relief, and it’s not the grace of release—oh we get those in pieces, but largely that’s to come. It’s the grace of refinement, because that’s precisely the grace that they need. ” — Michael Horton
