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 Mystery

 

 

The most important search a believer can give himself to is finding out what God’s ultimate intention is and how he fits into it. This should be a lifetime search, Eph. 1:4.

 

"According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love."

 

It is an ever expanding search, finding its way into every part of life’s incidents, and always coming to the same knowledge that God’s intention is indeed working, and working for our good and His glory.

Sometimes a believer lives most of his life before coming to this conclusion, but in time, God’s grace is sufficient to his coming to know this great truth.

It is wonderful to see that we are not just struggling to find the answers to life, God, in His divine providence, is arranging “converging powers” to bring this great understanding to us. It is an act of God’s love, one which will not suffer us to be ignorant of His plan and intention, Gal. 4:1-2.

 

1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;

2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

 

The great hindrance to this is religion. Religion continually intervenes, subjecting the believer to a lesser understanding based on man’s evaluations rather than on God’s Word. This is a very subtle work of Satan, for his greatest desire is to keep us from seeing what God is doing in the world and for His children.

 

But, in all of this, love will triumph. His love for the believer is greater than any force, even our own misled, religious knowledge. It is most comforting to know, in these troubled days, that He is ever moving toward His ultimate intention.

 

That intention is simply to have children whom He has redeemed filling His house. Praise God, this is happening with a startling acceleration every day.
