Love

Bible verses about love.

Love is a word that we often hear, but it's sometimes misunderstood. Love is more than just a word or a feeling. Love is an action, and it is something that we do. It's a beautiful thing to love and be loved. As Christians, we are called to love one another as Christ loved us. In this blog post, we will look at 10 Bible verses about love that will help us understand what true love is, and how we can apply it in our lives.


John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." This verse reminds us of the greatest love of all, which is the love that God has for us. The love that God has for us is selfless and sacrificial.


1 Corinthians 13:4-7: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." This famous passage reminds us of the qualities of true love. Love is patient, kind, and always perseveres.


Romans 12:9-10: "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." This verse tells us that love must be sincere. We must hate what is evil and cling to what is good. We must honour one another above ourselves.


Ephesians 5:25: "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her." This verse reminds us of the love that Jesus has for us. He sacrificed his own life for us, and we should do the same for our spouses.


1 John 4:18: "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." This verse reminds us that true love drives out fear. If we love someone, we should not be afraid of them.


Song of Solomon 8:7: "Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one's house for love, it would be utterly scorned." This verse tells us that love is an unquenchable force. Nothing can wash away true love.


Colossians 3:14: "And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." This verse reminds us that love is the glue that holds all virtues together. We should always put on love and let it bind everything together in perfect unity.


1 Peter 4:8: "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." This verse tells us that love covers over a multitude of sins. If we love one another deeply, we can forgive each other's sins.


Proverbs 10:12: "Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs." This verse tells us that hatred only causes conflict, but love can cover over all wrongs.


John 15:13: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." This verse reminds us that the greatest love is when we are willing to lay down our lives for our friends.


Love is an essential part of who we are as humans. It's not just a word, but it's something that we do.
