The word love is profound and endearing, although it cannot be measured the depth of it can be felt. We hear it in songs, read about it and display it. Love is something that each of us desire both consciously and unconsciously. The word love appears in the Bible over 300 times, in many ways describing God’s love for us and how we should love others. God’s love for us is unfailing and unconditional. John 3:16 declares “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. Romans 8:38-39 explains that nothing nor no one can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. According to Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. There are 3 types of love that the Bible talk about, which are, Philos, Eros, and Agape. Philos is
what we should be displaying toward friends, family and others according to John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another”. Eros is a passionate love that is known through physical attraction. Song of Solomon 1:2 states “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, for your love is better than wine”. Lastly, we have Agape love, which is the highest form of love, the love of God for us. John 17:26 says “And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them”.
