Love is who God is

Jan 24, 2018 | Raunaq & Dr. Sara

Agape is the highest form of Love, the purest as it can get. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 gives us a small idea of this Agape Love. The word Agape being Greek in origin, means unconditional and sacrificial love unlike Philia( love for family and friends), Eros( affectionate Love between lovers), and Storge( parents’ love for their children).
Agape is on a totally different league, where it’s totally independent of us. It’s GOD’s Sacrificial, Unconditional, Unlimited, and Inexpressible LOVE.

When we look at God’s creation itself, there are fragments of His Agape Love. A beautiful flower does not live for itself. It buds and blossoms, it lives so that it can look appealing to our eyes and its death also turns out for our benefit once it goes back into the soil. Human minds can’t fathom this Love because we have not felt it in our lives.

Love is Who God is! He cannot be anything other than that. When humans were created, God, not being bound by time or space, knew that we would rebel against Him, but still chose to make us and made the best provision to redeem us forever.
This Agape Love – JESUS, put on flesh and dwelt among us enduring the worst for us because that’s how HE is…asking his creation (you and me), ‘Do you love me more than this world?’.

Many of us search for this Real Love. We search for it at the wrong places and meet the wrong faces, and realize later that what we have found is selfish.

OR

WE CAN SET OUR EYES ON THE ONE WHO IS LOVE. JESUS!

He is the Love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

God is patient. God is kind. He does not envy. He does not boast. He is not proud. God does not dishonour others. He is not self-seeking or easily angered. God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes and He always perseveres. God never fails!!
