God’s kind of love

Also called agape love, this is love from the Godly perspective. True

brotherly, neighbourly and unfailing love as conceived by God. It is love

devoid of worldly desires, greed, and lust of the flesh. The unconditional

affection that transcends the limitation of race, national boundaries,

religion, colour, earthly status or attainments, and physical disposition.

Agape love is the selfless and sacrificial love exemplified by God through

the giving of His only begotten son – Jesus Christ who although sinless died

for the transgressions of mankind; thus guaranteeing our redemption. In 2

Cor. 5:21 the Bible tells us that “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for

us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”

The world would be a better place if man could simply love his fellow man

God’s way. Our Lord Jesus christ said to His disciples, “my command is this:

love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that

he lay down his life for his friends” - John 15:12-13.
