From Sunday's Sermon: The 4 Core Elements of Agape Love
I John 4:9-10 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1. Agape Love Always seeks the Highest Good in Another
God the Father did not withhold His most precious possession: His Son
"He sent His One and Only Son"
2. Agape Love Always commits itself First
"He loved us"
3. Agape Love Always is a Giving Love
"He sent His Son"
4. Agape Love Always Sacrifices
"Atoning sacrifice for our sins"
