Agape Love Part 3—“Christian Kindness in Action”

This week’s study is titled: “Christian Kindness in Action.” 1 Corinthians 13 says that agape love is kind. Romans 12 illuminates what kindness is. This sermon goes through these characteristics and expounds how they contribute to the agape love we are developing in our Christian walk.

You can listen to it online at ucg.org/sermons/christian-kindness-in-action-agape-love-series-part-3 or download it to your favorite mobile device. All 11 parts are available as a sermon series at ucg.org/sermons/sermon-series/agape-love.
