What The Bible Says About Love
The core of the Bible and Jesus Christ is about love and the following is only a small representation of the many verses that shows us what love is all about.
Our walk as a Christian needs to include love in all aspects of our life. God wants to us to lead a life of faith and discipline loving others and ourselves. One helpful way to take in the word of God is to understand that he loves us, through scriptures we can use the messages as a guide in our daily lives.

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Getting To That Place Of Pure Love
Traditionally we look at love in terms of marriage, dating, romance, relationships, and other perspectives of the world. As a child of God we need to look at love from a biblical point of view. If we are patient in our walk and exercise the right discipline we’ll come to a place where the answers to our questions and prayers regarding love will be realized in our everyday life. When that comes to pass we’ll be living the life God and Jesus Christ wants us to live when it comes to love.
