Those we love capture our hearts. They can arouse strong feelings of joy, pride, and deep devotion.
Love is a verb - it is passionate, purposeful and continual. The Apostle Paul describes love for us in I Corinthians 13:4-8. Biblical love has many important characteristics that are often contrary to what society tells us about love.
What defines love for you? Who is the recipient of your affection? It could be your "first love" or perhaps your very best friend. It might be someone in your family like a spouse, a child, a parent or a sibling.
The Lord has appeared of old to me saying: Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. (Jeremiah 31:3)
believed in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
