Christians have capacity to love –Olisaemeka

AGAPE love is the sustained will towards the good of others. When you give your life to Christ, the capacity to love is deposited as a seed in your life through the Holy Spirit.

 The Resident Pastor, Dominion City, Enugwu-Agidi, Charles Olisaemeka made the revelation during a church service marking the last Sunday in the month of October. The cleric, who was teaching on what he tagged, ‘the cardinal virtues of Christianity’, mentioned four different kinds of love to include; Philoe, Storge, Errors and Agape, stressing that Agape love is God’s kind and nature which does not depend on feelings but it seeks the good of others as it is a commandment and not optional.

 Pastor Olisaemeka explained that to mature in love,  a Christian must not concentrate on other people’s weakness rather they should focus on their strength because there is always the good side in every human being as there is no perfection in man but only God.

 He further hinted on the need to serve others as well as feed on the word of God for everything God has for mankind is hidden in His word.

 According to the cleric, “love rides on the wings of two  important virtues: giving and forgiving,” stressing that giving is an expression of love as the Bible recorded in the book of John chapter 3: 16, saying that God so loved the world and gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. Therefore Christians are expected to reciprocate the love of God by expressing genuine love to others.

 In the aspect of forgiving, he charged Christians to always forgive all wrongs done to them as God has forgiven them.

Although some persons are difficult to dwell with, he outlined ways to love them which included; praying for them, being lovable as the level of your success is dependent on the strength of your relationship with others.

 According to the pastor, “walking in love does not connote stupidity but it’s the fulfillment of the law. Always speak the right things about others. 

 “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.”
