What Agape Is Not

Agape is one of several Greek words translated into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God for mankind.   John 3:16 tells us that for God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son…..and so on.  But in all things we must rightly divide the word of God, and not solely look at his love for mankind, but also the sovereignty of who He is.  Because this same God who took on flesh and died for us while we yet sinners, is the same God who says that I heal, I wound, I kill, and I make alive.  He is the same God who will someday say to His creation that He so loves, but have rejected Him, depart from me, I know you not, thus sending to an eternal life damn in Hell.  Yet a remains a loving God who loves like no one else.

Love does not come without rules, commandments, and discipline.  The Bible says that God chasten those that He loves and even those that He loves, if they disobey Him, comes consequences for one actions. I know love covers a multitude of sins, but at the same time, one still must reap what they sow.   As the Lord has ordained rules and commandments that is ordained by His word that even His Agape love cannot nor will not change.  Rules that says that if you do this, this will happen, if you don’t this, this will happen.  Even the grace of God will not change the Word of God.  This why the Apostle Paul warned us in the 6th chapter of Romans not to take God’s grace as some sort of toys when he said, “Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound, God forbid”. 

The Agape love of God is not some weak, wet dish rag, letting us do anything and everything we want to and with no price to pay.  God loves comes with a price, a price that was paid on a hill called Calvary, a love that was brought by His blood.   Agape love is endless, Agape love is precious, Agape love is Holy, Agape love is pure, Agape love is forgiving, Agape is God’s grace, but if you thought that Agape love is weak…..THAT IT IS NOT.  

Now with that being said……(more to come)
