Kinds of Love
Let all that you do be done in love.
Love as it is used in the English Language is an over used all recompensing term covering everything from hamburgers , sex and platonic friendship. The New Testament was written in Greek and the Greek Language does a much better job conveying which Love a person is referring to:
Eros, or sexual passion. The first kind of love was eros, named after the Greek god of fertility, and it represented the idea of sexual passion and desire. …
Philia, or deep friendship. …
Ludus, or playful love. …
Agape, or love for everyone. …
Pragma, or longstanding love. …
Philautia, or love of the self.
Many words for love.
When we refer to GOD’s Love it is the best Love of all and it is “unconditional”. When we falter we can easily be forgiven because of GOD’s all encompassing incomparable Love. This is so though Earthly consequences may still follow. When Jesus secured our eternity in Heaven by dying for all sin in all time, it is only applied when we trust and accept Him.
John 3:16 ESV
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
The Word of GOD describes love lie this:
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
The Only Thing We Can Say is GOD is LOVE

1 John 4:8 ESV
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Our Words of Love pale in the light of GOD and are empty all too often when we fail the people in our life; fail to live up to our profession of faith.
