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.

Some of you may have read a book called God's Smuggler, by Brother Andrew. The author tells how he smuggled Bibles into countries behind the Iron Curtain. The book was published in 1968 but Brother Andrew is still involved in helping persecuted Christians. He has formed an organization called Open Doors to help carry out his work. Their website is https://www.opendoorsusa.org/ .


There have been a lot of changes since the book was published. Then the greatest threat to Christian freedom was Communism; now it is Islam. Open Doors still provides Bibles for persecuted Christians but now it provides other kinds of help as well. I recommend this site for anyone who wants to help persecuted Christians or wants information about their needs in order to pray for them.
