To Love 

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 

1 John‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬ NIV

The Greek word for “love” here is Agape. It is love that gives generously, cares first, forgives first, extends endless second chances and never gives up. It is the word that describes who God is, his nature, his heart, his very being. He is uncontainable, unrelenting, unending, unchanging love.

Agape love is heaven’s greatest treasure and earth’s most desperate need.

God has given you people to love like this.

Love them authentically.

Without expecting anything back.

Forgiving them and giving them to God.

Not because they deserve it.

Not in your strength but with God’s.

Agape love in truth and in action is the most powerful force in the world.

Who has God given you to love?

How are you going to love them today?
