The purpose of this article is not an effort to put a stop to mentioning agape in our messages. We can reduce the confusion by thinking of agape as both a Greek word and an English word since it has been adopted into the English language.
As a Greek word, it has no inference of anything spiritual. But when used as an English word, it is commonly viewed as a spiritual love.
Philos noun appears 29 times, and phileo verb appears 25 times. However, agape appears times and agapao appears times in the New Testament, so we see how much more prevalent is this pair of words compared to philos and phileo. Some people think of agape and agapao as decisive love from the mind head while they think of philos and phileo as more spontaneous and emotional love from the heart, like affection.
Here we see that agapao and phileo are used interchangeably! When the New Testament speaks of godly love, it does not always use agape or agapao.

Titus 3 : 15 Titus 3 : 15 All that are with me salute you. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. To illustrate, God loved all people who were generally unlovable! Consider Romans 5 : 6 -8 Romans 5 : 6 -8 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. Love is taught throughout the Old Testament as well. Many New Testament scriptures about love are quotes from the Old Testament. The Hebrew language expresses love very well.
Consider the two Great Commandments. It is in the Old Testament times. It indicates steadfast and compassionate love and mercy. Some of the translations are mercy , lovingkindness and goodness. Hesed most often is referring to the love of God toward His people. To understand the attitudes and actions of godly love requires far, far more revelation than knowing the definitions of a couple of Greek words and a couple of Hebrew words.
A major way that we express our love for and loyalty to God is by obeying His Commandments 1 John 2 : 4 -6 1 John 2 : 4 -6 4 He that said, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. Jesus taught and demonstrated a much higher level of love than the world had ever known! The first one is we are to love, with the love of God, without pretending. Sentimentality lacks depth. It makes us ask, is anything real about this person?
The love of God is never this way. It is Love without pretending. This is how a child loves.
They have no agenda, no hypocrisy, they simply love. Loving with the love of God is simpleness and honesty to its core. Where something is welded together it is stronger at that point than any other place on the metal. When we love with that love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation we avoid evil at all costs. Then we weld ourselves to that which is good. What kind of good? Others who are loving without hypocrisy!
How do we do that? Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.
Be not wise in your own conceits. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. What a list! You may look at this one of two ways. There are just too many. I believe, someone with the Love of God in the renewed mind in manifestation in their life will already be doing this list and may not realize it. These things are characteristic of what is already going on. Love energizes believing. These are simply symptoms of someone with a good case of love.
But how do you get to this point where love is so present that it spills out like this? How do you get rid of darkness? Introduce the Light.
How do you get rid of fear? Do you see how simple it is? Some of the torment of fear is fearing what people will think of you. Love casts that fear out. How do you get a higher self esteem? How do you become truer to yourself? There are three and by the end of this study you are going to thrill at how it all ties together.
