The 'LOVE' Verses


Agape is translated as:  affection, good will, love, benevolence, brotherly love

This word, agape, was a new word for love in the Bible. It wasn't found in classical Greek. Paul used it to help the church of Corinth understand all those spiritual gifts they'd received from the Holy Spirit were completely useless if they didn't put love first. (It would benefit to read chapter 12 of 1 Corinthians to gain understanding of chapter 13.)

Today (and perhaps even back in biblical days), we toss around the word love so much, it has lost its importance, its value. It doesn't matter how many languages we speak. If there is not love in those words, they become meaningless. 

We live in a noisy world.
I don't want to add my clatter to it.

What I want most is to simply...

Love the Person Before Me

How will you love others today?
