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.

The Ultimate Gift

Recommended Posts

The ultimate gift. Was given and was wrapped up in the person of Jesus Christ, God’s beloved Son.

 

For His Son, is like the parable of the talent Matt 25:14-30; – where the master has given to each of the three a measure. This was His deposit to them, His gift. Yet it was not to be treated as their own to tuck away but instead to be taken as something to grow and make increase. We all read the plight of the one servant who did nothing with it as it angered the master greatly!

 

Likewise, we will all be asked one day, “What have you done with My Beloved Son?”

 

John 3:16 John 10:10 Matt 10:39
