Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1Cor 13:4-8)
Most people define love as a type of feeling. We "fall in love," or two people meet and it is "love at first sight." The world's definition of the word love is all about self. If two people are attracted to each other they must be ...view middle of the document...

This shows that true biblical love is a matter of will and not of our own emotion. God chooses to love us and His love is not based on our works or deeds; it is unconditional.
Biblical Foundation:
“We are told in Matthew 22:37, ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’” (Praxis, 71). 1 John 4:8 tells us that ". . . God is love." The Apostle Paul's discourse in 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, addresses the true righteousness of those who profess Jesus Christ. "Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth. . . “(1 Cor. 13:4-8a). True biblical love does not fail. Using the word love brings different meanings to different people. The King James Version of the Bible often translates the word "agape" as "charity." The Bible expresses three different kinds of love. The first kind of love is “Agapao" This word is a verb used to describe God's divine love. A great example of agape love is shown in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This is showing the action of being totally committed to the well-being of others without regard for their worthiness. The love that was demonstrated by Jesus when He suffered and died for our sins is true Biblical love. We are supposed to show that unselfish love to others. The second kind of love is "Phileo" This word translated "love" refers to fervent love for another person. Jesus when challenging Peter in John 21:15-17 asked do you agape me more than the other disciples. Peter replied, "Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee" This was his response four times to Jesus' questions. Peter never used the word "agape" in response to Jesus' questions. The third and final kind of love described in the Bible is "Eros" This noun refers to sexual love.
Practical Application:
Friend, Sister, Mother, Confidant, Daughter, Fiancé, and Child
I am all of these things to the people around me, but God wants me to be this to everyone. Love is an action word. I am constantly telling people that I love them. I do not just tell them with my words; I also show them with my actions. Love is giving. I always tell people that if I have it then they have it. I will give my last to someone in need. That is what God expects of me. How can I say that I love Jesus and I have never seen His face, but I see men/women on Earth here suffering and I refuse to help? Love refers to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection to pleasure. In course material I read, “The entire Old Testament requirements and...
