*Romans 5:8- But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
"What the world needs now is love, sweet love" as Jackie DeShannon (or for those of you who have watched Boss Baby a million times) would sing. But I say the world needs to throw some 'Agape kind of love' in there!
So much in one word! Agape love is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love. It is the highest type. God gives this love without condition, unreservedly to those who are undeserving and inferior to himself. One important aspect of agape love is that it extends beyond emotions. It's much more than a feeling or sentiment. Agape love is active. It demonstrates love through actions.
The well known Bible verse, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16, is the perfect example of agape love expressed through actions. The all-encompassing love of God for the entire human race caused him to send his son, Jesus Christ, to die and, thus, save every person who would believe in him. God's divine love!
