Love in Action - Agape Love

We are living in a broken world that needs everyone's involvement to bring about some change. People are constantly fighting amongst each other, children against their parents, and of course wives against husbands, all this fighting happens because of the lack of love in today’s homes.

Let’s talk about the different types of love that exist. The ancient Greeks studied love and often spoke of seven types of love, some of these are called: Eros, Philia, Storage, Ludus,

Pragma, Philautic, and Agape. However, Today I would like to focus on just two types of love. Philia is usually translated as "friendship" or affection and is considered a type of brotherly love.

However, Agape is often crowned as the highest form of love. It is the kind of love that shows empathy and a genuine desire for the well-being of others.

Agape Love unconditionally extends help to others, it demonstrates good intentions, it transcends boundaries, and encompasses everyone. In John 13:35 Jesus said, " By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Paul also talked about love in 1 Corinthians 13. He starts by saying

“If I speak the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love... I'm nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give my body to hardship that I may boast but do not have

love, l gain nothing. Here is what love is: 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, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.”

My friends, it is time to act out of Love because God is love and love never fails!
