Agape” is one of several Greek words for love. When the word “agape” is used in the Bible, it refers to a pure, willful, sacrificial love that intentionally desires another’s highest good.
Definition for agape
The love of God or Christ for humankind. the love of Christians for other persons, corresponding to the love of God for humankind. unselfish love of one person for another without sexual implications; brotherly love.
Agape love does not come naturally to us in our sinful state. However, it does come naturally to God and is an essential part of Him. When we draw closer to God and Experience His love, we are able to begin understanding what this real love means. Only through our relationship with God can we experience and show agape Love.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
WHAT IS AGAPE LOVE
In the New Testament of the KJV of the Bible, Love is mentioned more than 150 times and is considered the main component of what is cited as God’s two greatest commandments:
1. Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30)
2. Love one another as I have loved thee (John 13:34)
The spiritual understanding of agape love is that it is unconditional and selfless in nature. A love that emulates the love of God.
“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life” (John 3:16)
Every person on earth is a Child of God giving them the birthright and blessings of being a child of Royal birth. Loved by the infinite Creator of this Earth.
A Heavenly Father who Loved you, individually, enough to create a Earth for you to live. That is filled with flowers, trees, birds, animals, and everything your heart could desire…
He loved each of us so much that He sent Jesus Christ; His only Son, to Pay for our sins so we can return to live with Him for eternity. He did this knowing we would be imperfect and have weaknesses, but He Loved us that much to lay down the life of His Son for our sins.
That is Agape Love.
