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.

How to Resolve Conflict and Preserve Unity in Your Church

Recommended Posts


Peacemaking_church-200x300.jpgYou’ve never known a church without conflict. That’s because there’s never been a church without conflict. Yet many churches remain under-equipped with the tools to make peace.

Curtis Heffelfinger offers one of those tools in his new book, The Peacemaking Church: 8 Biblical Keys to Resolve Conflict and Preserve Unity, published by Baker Books. Since 2003 Curt has served as the pastor-teacher of Orlando Grace Church in Florida. He joins me on The Gospel Coalition Podcast to explain how churches can make peace, why this work is especially difficult for Reformed believers, how we can head off conflict before it starts, and why trouble so often starts with music leaders and youth ministers, among other topics.

You can listen to the episode here.
