His Love

Agapáō (1 John 5:3 ) vs Agapé (1 Corinthians )

His Love is not the pagan philosophical concept of emotional love.

"This is My commandment, that you love (agapaó) one another, just as I have loved (agapaó) you." John 15:12

love = ἀγαπάω ; agapaó

agapaó - Embracing the Father's will (choosing His choices) and obeying them through His power.

/agapáō ("to love") means actively doing what the Father prefers, with Him (by His power and direction).

True /agapáō ("loving") is always defined by the Father – a "discriminating affection which involves choice and selection"

"For this is the love (agapaó) of the Father, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome." 1 John 5:3

Heathens love one another in the pagan christian emotional sense . This is not the same as loving in Him.

agapé - Properly, love which centers in moral preference. So too in secular ancient Greek.

This is the word used in 1 Corinthians 13:4
Love (agapé) is patient, love (agapé) is kind and is not jealous; love (agapé) does not brag and is not arrogant,

This is dealing specifically with the gift of The Spirit, which we do not have nor understand (see "Truth about The Holy Spirit").

If we want to receive the The Holy Spirit we must seek His Righteousness first:

"But seek first His kingdom and His Righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:33

...Worked for all the Prophets, Apostles, and Disciples from Genesis to Revelation.

We Love Him by keeping His Commands, and we Love one another by serving (sacrificing for) one another (Believers in Messiah). A serious question is...who is a Believer in Messiah?
