Agape LoveWednesday, September 7, 2016
2 Timothy 2:22
“let the agape-love of God romance you into his rest where you cease from striving and bask in completeness”
Agape love is not a feeling; it's a motivation for action. Agape is a sacrificial love that voluntarily suffers inconvenience, discomfort, and even death for the benefit of another without expecting anything in return. Agape love does not keep score.
God loves us so much that he took our sin and paid for it in hell. His grace (unearned, undeserved, unmerited favor) towards us is his agape love. There is no way we will ever deserve it. We will never be good enough or do enough “good” things to earn it. He told us to stop trying, so stop! It’s a free gift. Satan is the one who wants you to think you have to work or be good enough. Be righteous conscious because you are in right standing before God!
He wants you to rest! Today, rest in His agape love! Bask in completeness! Remember who you are, righteous and one with Him!
