Romans 5:8 – But God has made clear his love to us, in that, when we were still sinners, Christ gave his life for us. Bible in Basic English.
There are different types of love mentioned in the bible, but today I will share on Agape. Agape is the kind of love that God has for us. It comes from the Greek word Charis which Means charity. When we give to charity we do it because of out love for the cause or because compassion for the people or project. God’s compassion for us is very great.
The worldly definition of the word Agape is “Unconditional love. A love that stems from the ability of the initiate to see the divine spark in all life”
God sees a divine spark in all of us. That divine spark is his son Jesus Christ, when God sees me he doesn’t just see Patricia the person he sees me through the eyes of his son Jesus.
The comprehension of God is too great for me to understand but God told me when seeking me, seek me in the context of my love for you. If we ask any Christian do they know how much God loves them they will tell you yes, and usually quote the scripture John 3:16 “FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON… but do we really know the depth of it?
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE REVELATION OF THE LOVE OF GOD?
THE GREATEST DEFENSE AGAINST THE ATTACKS OF SATAN IS TO BE FULLY CONVINCED OF GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU THROUGH THE REVELATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
GOD IS LOVE, WHO BETTER TO FIGHT YOUR CORNER AGAINST THE DEVIL
HIS BIGGEST TOOL AGAINST YOU IS TO CONVINCE YOU THAT YOU ARE NOT LOVED OR LOVABLE.
WE CAN NEVER TRULY LOVE UNLESS WE KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF IT. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED SOMETHING YOU CANNOT GIVE IT!!!! IT IS EASIER TO UNDERSTAND GRACE-UNMERITED FAVOUR IF WE UNDERSTAND UNMERITED/UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
All our lives we are told to Love God, & Sometimes we question why should we love God? It is rarely taught on how much God loves us, I’m here today to let you know God loves you.
