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.

Turkey's arrest of Andrew Brunson

Recommended Posts

Andrew Brunson was arrested in Turkey after serving as a pastor there for 23 years. It seems this is part of a crackdown on Christians, with several refused re-entry to the country when they left temporarily.


He is accused of connections with last summer's coup. Whether or no he is guilty we don't know, because his legal counsel and the US consul have been refused access to the evidence dossier by the Turkish government. Without the evidence being available, it looks disturbingly like there's something else going on. The US government are stepping in, but there's not a lot they can do. Whether this treatment of Christians will continue after April or get worse once Erdogan has his position solidified by referendum we can only wait and see.
