In a sermon I once wrote, I focused on the Greek word for love: agape, in English, translated as "charitable love." Agape is not "eros": erotic love. Nor is it "philos": brotherly/sisterly love for friends. Nor is it "storge": family love. Agape love is like grace, a free gift for others that is undeserved, unearned or unmerited. Agape is love as revealed in Jesus —spiritual and selfless, a model for humanity. I ended the sermon by saying, "If we are to be like Jesus, we are to love one another."
