In today’s lesson we will be exploring the idea of just what it means to love others with agape love. Actually, the use of the Greek word agape is pretty much restricted to the writings of the Christian church. And that makes a lot of sense, because the word draws its meaning from the revelation of God in the cross of Jesus Christ. As we will see today, agape love is not the sloppy agape of “the bleeding- heart liberals.” It is the love of Christ in us. It is divine love. It is sacrificial love. It is powerful love.
