What does the Bible say about love? Where can you find verses about love in the Bible?
One of the best parts of Valentine’s Day is that as Christians we can share about how much God loves us, since “love” is already on people’s minds.
The love of the Lord surpasses human love–it is complex and multi-faceted. Honestly, God’s love is NOT what some people think it is!
I wanted to share some of my favorite verses about Jesus’ love for us–I’ve been thinking on these a lot lately, because God’s view of love is so different from what the world says it is. I think it’s important that as Christians we go to the Word for a solid understanding of who God is and what His love really means :)
