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.

    • Cross – Calling – Comforter

      There are three things of the greatest importance in Christianity: 1) the Cross; 2) the calling of God: 3) the condition which qualifies believers to enter into divine things.   It is easy to see that man as lost in Adam must be set aside if blessing is to come in from God; but it is not so easy to see that all those faculties which makes man great—wisdom, intelligence, prudence, power, etc.—tend to keep him in darkness and ignorance of God. Man, with all that makes him great as well a

    • The Supreme Court Is Poised To Protect This 40-Foot Veteran’s Cross

      By Kevin Daley - The Supreme Court seemed poised Wednesday to protect a 40-foot memorial cross on public land in Bladensburg, Maryland from a lawsuit that argues it violates the Constitution. Though the bottom-line outcome was never seriously in doubt, the justices appeared divided and confused during Wednesday’s argument as to why the monument should pass constitutional muster. The Court’s jurisprudence concerning religion in public life is famously confused — on one day in 2005, the hig

    • From the Cross to the Glory

      It is a blessed fact that, wherever the Blood is relied on, God cannot see a single sin! He would have to deny the efficacy of the Blood if He did not pass over it (Exo 12:13). What protected Israel was not their seeing the Blood but God seeing it. Many souls are saying, “I do not know whether I have accepted it aright.” But what gives peace is knowing that God has accepted it. They think they must look into their own hearts to see if they have accepted it aright: but a simple soul would not thi

    • 6 Ways Cross-Cultural Church Planting Has Been Good for Our Kids

      When we recently unpacked our boxes in suburban Denver, it was into my daughters’ third home. But not only their third home, their third country. Third continent, actually. Third culture, third language, third way of life, third new beginning. Though my husband and I are Colorado natives, we’d been gone a long time, and our kids had never lived here. As we met our new neighbors, they were either awestruck or incredulous. We heard, “Wow, what a great experience for your kids!” But also, “How sad
