Types of Love
Storge - might also be called affection or familial love.
Eros - is romantic love.
Philia - is friendship love.
Agape - could be define as charity (200 times mentioned in the Bible and can only be found in NT)
Agape love is
- formed without any measure of relationship; selfless, sacrificial, unconditional and the highest form of love.
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. John 3:16
Humans, as we all know, are created out of love. Every part of what we have in our bodies is a byproduct of the Supreme Being's most authentic concept. And as humans, we've been imprinted with that kind of innate talent; to create.
We have created and nurtured love in various ways, and it was Jesus who have demonstrated the true meaning of love, which differed from any kind of love that an ordinary human in a celestial body could provide to its co-exist.
A New kind of Love:
Jesus instructed his followers to love one another in the same self-sacrificing manner in which he loved them. This command was novel because it required a new kind of love for humans, agape love.
Do you still remember when Jesus commanded us to abide in his love?
"As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love." - John 15:9
