The Bible says, “God is love,” in John 4:8. 1 Corinthians 13 tells us that love is patient, love is kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud and much more. But what is love? Love is a choice that we make to care about someone in a self-sacrificial way. An example of true love is when Jesus gave Himself up as the sacrificial lamb for us by coming down to earth to live among sinful man, dying on the cross, and rising from the the grave. Jesus’ love was manifested when he took all our sins ever committed upon Himself so that we can have eternal life. The passion we feel when we see someone who is comely is not love, but infatuation. That feeling and passion goes away in time, but true love or agape love lasts. Therefore, what is the epitome of agape love? For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.-John 3:16
