Pouring into our hearts…

IMG_4411-2-2-2And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:5

This Love that has been poured out into our hearts is Agape Love. God does not make requests to us unless He also gives us the ability to do it. Agape Means that we should be able to live our life unselfishly and entirely for the benefit of others. Agape is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love, the highest of the four types of love. That sure seems like a tall order!I have struggled with this, and I have seen people who do this so effortlessly. It is a choice we make to love another person whether they love us back or not. It means that we choose to love someone even if they are our enemy. This hard to do, to love someone that does not love you back!?. But it is clear that Jesus “agape loves” us and commands us to “agape love” others.
