I can hear Eddie Murphy in Coming to America singing in my head “To be loved, to be loved ohhh what a feeling to be loved”, when he fell in love with his Queen. Remember how good it feels to know you are loved? What about the butterflies you get when you hear their voice, when they touch your hand, when they comfort you, when you finally get it, they love you and they are not leaving. What about when they have seen you at your best and worst and loves you anyway. That’s the love I’m talking about. Agape Love
Who do you love so much that you would kill your child for them? I must be honest and say I could not kill my child even to save myself. But that’s how God loves!
Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. (John 3:16 ERV)
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, and I made plans like a child. When I became a man, I stopped those childish ways. It is the same with us. Now we see God as if we are looking at a reflection in a mirror. But then, in the future, we will see him right before our eyes. Now I know only a part, but at that time I will know fully, as God has known me. So these three things continue: faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:11-13 ERV)
