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.

On The Twenty-Third Psalm

In "pastures green"?

Not always; sometimes He

Who knoweth best, in kindness leadeth me

In weary ways, where heavy shadows be.

And by "still waters"? No, not always so;

Oft times the heavy tempests round me blow,

And o'er my soul the waves and billows go.

But when the storm beats loudest, and I cry

Aloud for help, the Master standeth by,

And whispers to my soul, "Lo, it is I."

So, where He leads me, I can safely go,

And in the blest hereafter I shall know,

Why, in His wisdom, He hath led me so.

    • 8 Steps for Real Repentance from Psalm 51

      My brother and I had a nightly childhood ritual of asking one another’s forgiveness for a list of vague sins. Having been warned not to let the sun go down on our anger, we made sure to cover all possibilities of sins we may have committed during the day. “Aaron, I’m sorry for yelling at you, hitting you, being selfish with the Nintendo, and tattling on you today. Will you forgive me?” His answer, along with his own confession, came back to my room in return. Thus we slept in the peace of the sl

    • Psalm 34: Jesus is the Lord (YHWH)

      Psalm 34 is a "Jesus Psalm" in that it refers to Him as YHWH, worship is properly rendered unto Him, His omniscience is taught, etc.  In each verse or verses below I make reference to that which applies unto the Lord Jesus.   Psalm 34 (NASB) 1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul will make its boast in the Lord; The humble will hear it and rejoice.  We are to praise the Lord Jesus in doxology (2 Timothy 4:18; 2

Faber       Psalm 83:18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.
