Bible Passages About Love

Hello reader, here's another article for Bible scholars. Today's article is centered on Bible Passages About Love. That sounds interesting, right? 😊

In our world, almost everyone talks about love, we share experiences about love and so on.

The feeling of being loved is amazing.

So, everyone has a personal opinion about love, people have different definitions of love but here's mine;

Love is  a natural affection for someone or something, I could also describe it as the show of extreme care to someone or something. Love does not discriminate, its unconditional, it should flow naturally as a christian being that we have the mind of Christ and his blood flows through our veins. The best love event recorded in the history of theology is that of Christ shown on the Cross of Calvary, in other to save us from sin and give us life in abundant.  

Moving on,

Christ expects us to exhibit the kind of Love he has shown us with our neighbor including our enemies. If I want to talk so much about love, it will eventually deviate our concentration from today's topic which is Bible Passages About Love.

So without further ado, I'll like to cut to the chase with our list of 70 Bible Passages About Love.
