Agape (Week 1)
February 1: Love Is A Verb Notes / Podcast
God’s definition of love isn’t a feeling. It’s not romantic. It’s action. God doesn’t just feel compassion, but rather acts for our good.

- February 1: Love Is A Verb
- February 8: God Does
- February 15: I Agape You
Love is such a subjective word. We love McNuggets, the Packers, our dogs, our family, our friends, and Moose Tracks ice cream, our God. Some people say they still love each other, but get divorced. We fall in love and then the love fades. So, how exactly is love defined? What is it? What does God mean when he says he loves us? Or that we should love one another? The goal of this series is to redefine “love” with God’s definition: To do what’s best for another person, no matter what it costs and no matter if they deserve it. The Bible has a little word for the big love that defines the Christian faith: Agape. Agape is what helps us understand the heart of God and what guides the love we have for each other. Agape defines God’s love for us and also the love our loved ones are dying to receive.
