Community Fellowship

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.

Oh What a Beautiful Morning

Recommended Posts

There is a famous song that goes:

"Oh what a beautiful morning / Oh what a Beautiful day / Oh what a beautiful feeling / everything's going My Way."

 

We can see in scripture that when Adam and Eve were in the garden, they had a few choices laid in front of them. We all know what they chose. (Rom1.21-23).

 

When Adam failed to believe (hearken to God's voice) and went his own way by his own wisdom (trusted in himself), in that moment, he sinned and died.

As a result of Adam's, transgression, we, who were in the loins of Adam, all died in him.

 

42 generations after God made a covenant with Abraham, He sent the redeemer, the promised seed, Jesus, to purchase us back.

 

To redeem means to purchase. (Rev5.9) If God purchased us, who had sold us out? Adam. It was by one man, Adam that sin entered into the world, and

death by sin. Consequently, all those which are the decendents of Adam are, by nature, in the same state that Adam was in when he left the garden: dead in tresspasses and sin. That was our state until Jesus quickened us. Now, we who where once dead in sin, are now alive in Christ. (1Co15.22).

 

Is that the end of the story? No. Just as Adam and Eve, way back there, had a choice, now we do too.

 

Adam got you into sin. Jesus got you out. So now you have gotten a taste and see of each. And it's up to you to decide which you love more.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the decision is in your hands. "Choose you this day whom ye will serve."

 

There are two options laid in front of you: Your way or His. Amen.
