Agape never fails. Agape is never without effect. Agape is never in vain.
If we allow God to exercise agape through us, no matter how it appears, no matter what happens---whether the work of agape is in us as the giver, in others as the receivers, or both----it will never be in vain. If God is calling upon you to love a very difficult person with agape, rejoice that your obedience will never be in vain! Agape is always effective!
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Jn. 13:34-35
God commands us to love as He loves!
Because Christ loves us:
True love is not at all blind. When we are vessels of agape, our spiritual eyes will be open like never before, because only true love can really see....right into the heart of God!
I am really enjoying this study on the Fruit of the Spirit. God has revealed so much! Just started studying the second characteristic of the fruit of God's spirit; JOY! (Week 4) Excited about what God has in store!
