Love is arguably the most powerful emotion and consequent action in the world, and in the universe. It saves human beings from the wrath of God and their sin. It is the tender care of a mother for her babies (1 Thes. 2.7). It is a main fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5.22).
It also is a demonic reason given for launching wars with the attendant slaughter of those human beings made in the image of God.
So what is real, true, and Biblical love? Dare we attempt to explain and give a definition? Yes, we will!
Love is our deeds to protect and provide for God’s kingdom, both His creation and creatures, which includes the body, soul, and spirit, their physical preservation, emotional stability, and spiritual maturity.
As His beloved creatures, we saints must obey Him implicitly to prove our love (John 13.35, 14.15, 21). In this we please Him in all respects (Colossians 1.10). It’s the lovely, precious, and costly grace of God that provides the power in all this (Titus 2.11-15).
