What Is God's Love Like?

On this earth we use the word “love” in many ways.  We may say we love our wives or husbands; we love to eat; we love our country.

In the Bible, it talks about 3 kinds of love.  There is eros, or romantic love.  There is phileo, or love for a friend.  And there is agape, which is God’s love.

In the Bible, there is a wonderful description of the love of God in the book of 1 Corinthians, the 13th chapter.  1 Corinthians 13 tells us that: 

  • Love is patient
  • Love is kind
  • Love is not jealous
  • Love does not brag
  • Love is not arrogant
  • Love does not act unbecomingly
  • Love does not seek its own
  • Love is not provoked
  • Love does not take into account a wrong suffered
  • Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness
  • Love rejoices with the truth
  • Love bears all things
  • Love believes all things
  • Love hopes all things
  • Love endures all things
  • Love never fails

 Isn’t the love of God wonderful?!
