Agape Love

In the New Testament, our English word for “love” is used in the place of four different Greek words: Philia (brotherly love), Eros (passionate love), Storge (parental love) and Agape (selfless love.) Agape is the love that God has for humanity, and that Christians should aspire to have for God and all people.

We humans seem to be afraid to love other people.

As humans, we can never fully comprehend God’s love, although it is our duty and joy to strive to understand it better and better. It is our duty and joy to increasingly internalize that same love and exercise it toward God and toward one another.

When we express godly love, we are showing people what God is like.
