What is Agape?
Agape is a Greek word for love, specifically unconditional love. Christians recognize this kind of love as God’s love for his people. For humans, true unconditional love is a difficult concept to understand. One example is the love of a parent for their child. While a parent may not always like what a child does or says, they still love the child no matter what.
Christians believe that all humans are sinners. God showed all mankind his unconditional love by sending his son Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus served as the sacrifice for all people, past, present, and future. Those who accept him and follow him as Lord and savior, can be reconciled to God and have eternal life. Jesus, by dying on the cross, provided the way for each of us to have an individual and eternal relationship with God.
As they say, two things are certain, death and taxes. While we have essentially no control over taxes, we have absolute control over our eternal destination after death. What is your destination after death? Do you know Jesus Christ as Lord and savior? We invite you to receive the greatest gift of all, grace from God, and it is absolutely free, the price paid in full by Jesus.
If you do not know Jesus as Lord and savior, please read the Bible. A good place to start is the book of John, the fourth book in the new testament. Seek out a local church fellowship and become involved for strength and support.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
