Agape Love

Published 5:35 pm Wednesday, December 12, 2018

When Jesus wakes you in the morning, softly calls your name, and whispers get up my child, that tingling feeling lets you know how much He loves us and that everything is well.

There are many kinds of love: Storge: love of a parent to a child; Eros: intimate or romantic love; Philia: brotherly love; and Agape: God’s love.

Agape love is the greatest one of all because it is the love of God for man and of man for God. It is a unique love that has nothing to do with emotional attachments but a love that embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends and persist regardless of circumstances.

Jesus stands at the door and waits for us to welcome Him in. He cannot enter until we permit Him to enter. Jesus is standing there with outstretched arms waiting to welcome us. One good thing about Jesus we don’t have to clean up before coming to Him. He will do all the cleaning. You would never be the same because some of the things that you did you would not want to do again. I’m not saying that you will not make mistakes again (and again, and again) but Jesus loves us enough to forgive us and clean us up again.

Jesus lets us know that He has known us all our lives, before we were born. He has instilled in each of us many powers. He has given us teachers, leaders, preachers, deacons, deaconess and many others to spread the Word that He is alive and that we must tell the world that He’s coming back. We can see by the changing of the seasons that time is getting closer and we must take a closer look at us. We must try to love instead of hate because time is near.

God sent His Son to let us know that His Love is unconditional and that we didn’t have to make any promises to Him. He is love and wants a loving relationship with us.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Be blessed in Jesus name.
