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.

Patterns To Receive A Revelation Of Jesus Christ 2

Recommended Posts

Soul man

Pattern 2

So the first thing we have seen is the contrast between the two gospels and losing our first love for Jesus

I think the Father allows these things we have been talking about to show the believer that being involved in these works means he is not growing in spiritual strength.

The church today has become more and more involved in these ministries and works in which there is no strength.

So the second thing God wants to teach us and another step toward a revelation of Jesus Christ. There is no strength in the utilization of spiritual ministries.

The strength is in Jesus, The life is in the Son. It is Christ who shares His all with us, and if we have His all, then all of these things will follow us in His time.

That is why I preach that people can see the sick healed and still live for Satan. I know how this happens, scripturally. They begin to draw their strength from the works, from the need, and not from Him.

Jesus alone is the only one who gives strength.

 

The Second step is shown in verses 10-12.

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be a servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."

 

Can you see the certified gospel in scripture given to Paul by revelation, was not taught to him by man.

The gospel ultimately and finally has to be revealed to you.

It cannot be written any plainer, in scripture, than it is written in Galatians.

 

Then how does God use man? Man's mission is to tell others that such a relationship and revelation exists.

The mission of preachers and teachers is to tell others that they are not complete until they have "the revelation of Jesus Christ."

We cannot bring revelation, but we can and must tell people daily to search the Scriptures to see Christ as their only life, Gal. 2:20

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
