Historians have noted that the ancient Greeks expressed three levels of love: Eros – a “give me” kind of love; Philia – a “give and take” kind of love; and Agape – an “unconditional” kind of love. Our Savior’s love was agape love. He loved us so much he came to earth to die on a rugged cross for sinners, like you and me. And one day, we will see His face and fully know the meaning of this agape love.
“My Savior’s Love” was written by Charles H. Gabriel, the most popular and prolific gospel song writer of the 1910-1920 decade. This song first appeared in the hymnal titled Praises, published in 1905. Meditate on this melody –
