What Is Love?

Depending on your translation the word “love” is mentioned in the Bible between 442-759 times!  

Love is vastly important to the narrative of the Bible.

But what does the Bible actually say love is?

1 Corinthians (13: 1-7)
13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

So what is love?

A better question would be WHO is love?

God Is Love.

Have a Blessed and Loving Week,
