What is love is very simple because we can never define love without the author, the creator. the bible is the best source for which we can derive every meaning, every connotation, every importance, attributes, implication and denotation of the word love.
The bible has clearly stated that God is love, and he that love is born of God, he that loves not, know not God. I definitely do not want to add nor remove anything from this definition because no one can successfully go against the truth, we can only do things for the truth, live for the truth. If you go against the truth you are going against God because God himself is the truth.
What is Love – 1 john 4: 7-21
7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
19 We love him, because he first loved us.
20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
When trying to know what is love can only draw very many definitions from the fact that God is love.
LOVE IS THE ABILITY to see another person as yourself. True love dos not discriminate, it takes everybody as being the same. True love depicts what Jesus did on the cross, the blood is for everybody, not only Israelite, but for whosoever.
God love everybody the same, he puts us on the same platform. Whatever anybody is able to do, another person can also do it. The same grace is for everybody, the Holy Spirit in me is the same Holy Spirit in you.
If it is one Jesus for everybody, one God for everybody, one Holy Spirit for everybody, one blood for everybody; then we are all the same, absolutely no difference.
The only place of difference is in position, attainment, achievement which is never due to the level of education but absolutely the level of the knowledge and understanding of the word of God which is the knowledge of God himself.
Outside this, nothing. Some people are more disciplined than others, some are more committed, more dedicated, more sacrificial in seeking to know God; this is the only thing that will give you an edge over another.
If you follow the dictionary meaning or concept of people, you will discover many ideas, perception, conceptions, feelings of people from different perspective, and all in the assumption of what love is. It is not possible for man to perceive on his own, guest without the consent of the author, the creator, the originator of love himself.
The bible says as the sky is far away from the earth, so is our thoughts differs from that of God. God is the one that brought the concept, he has the meaning. The bible contains the full meaning of what love is
We have written on the Deep meaning of love, Love definition, Best definition of love and more. To go further from where we have stopped is the full meaning of love.
The full meaning of love is also seen in the characteristics of love, the attributes of love;
LOVE has attributes, if somebody says he loves you, watch out if these attributes are present. Love is saying it the way God says and doing it the way God does it. God invented love, and kept these yardsticks for testing, measuring if the affection is really love or lust.
Therefore the one sentence that can define God is “GOD IS LOVE” If God is love, then true love is God. Let us make it a straight forward sentence, if God is love, then love is God.
The only difference here is that a lot of people or the world has faked love and give it a different definition by imposing lust on others and try their best to make them believe that is love.
I am very sure the true knowledge of what is love is giving you peace, joy, contentment, you are finding fulfilment.
