LOVE

ImageAgapao or agape is the nature of love of God toward his beloved Son (John 17:26); toward the human race in general (John 3:17); and toward those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 14:21).

If God agape’s all His human creation then why believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior? Great question! All of God’s human creation are enemies of God before becoming believers in Christ. Meaning whoever does not believe in Christ as Lord and Savior is anti-Christ, NOT the Antichrist, but against Christ. It was God who desired to be reconciled with us and initiated reconciliation, not the other way around.

Therefore, until those who don’t believe in salvation through Jesus actually choose to do so, there is still hostility with God that needs to be dealt with before reconciliation can happen. How does this happen you ask? Another great question! Acknowledge to God that you are a sinner; Believe that God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins; Choose to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. The blessing of Acknowledging, Believing and Choosing is spending eternity in the presence of God rather than an eternity separated from His great love for you.

Beloved, God’s love for all His creation is so complete and because He is holy, punishment for sin is required. THAT is why he sent his only Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins! (1 John 4:10). Jesus took YOUR punishment for sin by dying on the cross for YOU! That is AGAPE!
God loves you as much as He loves his Son Jesus; unconditionally and completely; regardless of your past or present. Now that is amazing GRACE!!!

Peace, love & GRACE.

    We have no way to get to the loving Father except through Jesus…(John 14:6). Until we believe in the Son, the Father will not hear us no matter what we do…

    Good post Terese,
