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.

Hi

I'm a Lutheran at heart attending an Anglican church (which I like very much). Just looking for interesting conversations and encouragement. My life, which includes my experience with Christianity, has been tumultuous, most by my own fault. I've had a love/hate thing with God since I was a child. For several years I was an agnostic/atheist, but I still felt that pull. I have found forgiveness and peace in the Lutheran faith, its honesty and radical grace.

Welcome bubbajack! Most all Christians have had a time of struggling with their faith. I have prayed more times that I can count "Lord I do believe; Please help me with my unbelief". Oh Bubbajack being a Follower of jesus is not easy. Faith does not come easy, we struggle to grow, and persistence. Becoming a mature Christian does not happen in a minuet. it takes our entire life.
