Sermonette: God's Way of FOR-GIVE

Forgiveness and Agape Love

Given 27-Oct-12; 16 minutes

description: (hide)

Bill Onisick, focusing on I John 3:10, affirms that agape love of our brethren denotes our identity as God's children. If we want to take on the characteristics of our Heavenly Father and Elder Brother, we must take on the self-sacrificing trait of being willing to lay down our lives for our brother. Forbearance and forgiveness seem to encapsulate the multiple definitions of love in I Corinthians. God should know us through our agape love and ability to forgive. Our diverse backgrounds give cause for offense, but God's Spirit should lead us to forgive and develop the way of give. If we want to be known as God's disciples, we must practice agape love to all our brethren.
