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.

2 Timothy 3:15

Recommended Posts

In 2 Timothy 3:15 it says Timothy knew from childhood the sacred Scriptures. Are not the Scriptures he learned from the Old Testament Scriptures? I understand from verse 16 that (ALL) Old Testament Scriptures were what this refers to, as at this point in time the New Testament was not gathered into a book.

 

Rev. Andy Stanley recently stated that we should be involved in the Old Testament, but in the New Testament. (my words) Andy Stanley disturbs me when he suggest this. I believe Paul clearly is saying that all the Scripture they had at that time was"Inspired by God".
