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.

John 6:65-66 and Arminianism

Recommended Posts

John 6:65-66

(65) And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”

(66) As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore.

 

 Verse 65 corresponds to what the Lord Jesus said earlier in John 6:44. 

 In verse 66 those who rejected what Christ said in verse 65 withdrew from him. His words from verse 65 caused them to disassociate from Him. 

 I do wonder if those who reject Calvinism would do the same...or better yet are they doing the same today? In other words, we will no longer walk with Christ because He said that no one can come to Him unless it was granted from the Father.
