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.

    • Praying for people to turn to Jesus

      I'd like to offer prayers for all who are hardened of heart, and refuse to hear the Gospel's positive message. It is the most important message any of us will ever hear, and I pray for those who prefer the world's agenda and voice, to Jesus. It's heavy on my heart, this morning. 😞

    • Is Jesus Michael the Archangel?

      1. Geneva Study Bible: The angel here notes two things: first that the Church will be in great affliction and trouble at Christ's coming, and next that God will send his angel to deliver it, whom he here calls Michael, meaning Christ, who is proclaimed by the preaching of the Gospel.

    • 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
