These messages were delivered by Pastor David on the Gospel of Grace Radio Broadcast from February to June 2019. There are multiple types of love addressed in the New Testament Greek scriptures, with the primary two being “phileo” (a brotherly affection) and then “agage” (a self-sacrifical love). The Greek word for love “agape” is oftentimes (but not always) translated in our KJV bibles as “charity”. This “agape love” can be defined as “a willing, sacrificial giving of one’s self for the benefit of another without the thought of return”. Christ exhibited this willing sacrificial agape love in sacrificing himself for our sins, not based upon any condition we would meet, but based solely upon his free and sovereign grace. Therefore, because of the amazing agape love that God has exhibited upon us, God now calls us to exhibit that same self-sacrificing agape love in our lives – to love others unconditionally and sacrifice for their benefit without the thought of return.
