Charity and Its Fruits by Crossway - IssuuThere is no new theology. There are new books published every month. And though I bestow stow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. And this charity, we find, is abundantly insisted on in the New Testament by Christ and his apostles,-more insisted on, indeed, than any other virtue. But these things are only certain particular branches, or fruits of that great virtue of charity which is so much insisted on throughout the New Testament.
Sermon 1: All True Grace in the Heart Summed up in Charity, or Love
For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. From the first of these verses, I have already drawn the doctrine, that that great fruit of the Spirit in which the Holy Ghost shall not only for a season, but everlastingly, be communicated to the church of Christ, is charity or divine love. And now I would consider the same verse in connection with the two that follow it, and upon the three verses would make two observations. First, that it is mentioned as one great excellence of charity, that it shall remain when all other fruits of the Spirit have failed. Second, that this will come to pass in the perfect state of the church, when that which is in part shall be done away, and that which is perfect is come.
