Show Notes

We wrap up our four-week series examining the four different kinds of love in the Bible. This week we focused on agape: the love most closely associated with God. In today’s episode we consider agape through excerpts from six different worship songs. Some key takeaways include the following: The world will know that we are Christians by our love. God’s love is manifested in this way: He gave His son to save us from the sin that began with Adam and Eve. There are not enough words to express the magnitude of God’s love. It is hard to be truly selfless in a culture that so encourages narcissism, self-promotion, self-indulgence, and self-satisfaction. God’s love never fails and never runs out and never gives up on us. That’s the kind of love we are called to show to our neighbor. But it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we can love that way. We need to pray that God will give us the gift of such love. And besides loving our neighbor as ourselves, we are called to love God with an all-encompassing love.

 

Scriptures referenced include 1 Corinthians 13; Matthew 19:19; and Matthew 22:37.
