A series of Bible messages that addresses the problems that seem to be steadily growing worse every day, both in our country and in the world. We are living in the mist of a global pandemic (Coronavirus) that has adversely affected so many people in so many ways. We are living in a time of great social and political unrest which has divided people in so many ways and resulted in a growing animosity between them. The greatest problem in the world is a spiritual problem, and the greatest need in our world is love. Not the type of love that the unbelieving world usually talks about, but the kind of love that comes from God, the kind of love described by the Greek word “agape” in the New Testament Scriptures. In this series, we explore the meaning and the characteristics of agape love and how it can impact our world for good.

These Bible messages were preached in 2020 (in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and the social unrest over racial issues) by Pastor Gregg Bing during the morning worship service at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

A Walk in Love

What the World Needs Now is Love

The world we live in, being divided over so many issues and filled with animosity and violence, needs love. But what kind? In this message, we examine the 4 primary Greek words for love: eros, storge, philia, and agape. We concentrate on agape love, the highest and noblest kind of love, the word the Holy Spirit uses to describe the love that is of God. This is the love that the world needs, but only believers in Jesus Christ are capable of showing this kind of love to others. We are commanded to "walk in love" as Christ loved us. But, what does agape love look like in a person's life? 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter, describes the nature and characteristics of agape love (vs. 4-8). This kind of love is a powerful force to impact the lives of others; it "never fails."

Scripture References: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

From Series: "What the World Needs Now is Love"

We live in a world that is divided over so many issues: a global pandemic, racial equality, moral issues, social issues, politics, and religion. The divisions have become so intense that the world seems filled with envy, jealousy, enmity, and violence toward one another. Few treat others with respect, kindness, or love. Love is clearly the greatest need, but not the type of love the world thinks of. We need the type of love that comes only from God. This series deals with why type of love is missing from the world, where it comes from, and how it should be shown by those who know God through Jesus Christ.
