God’s love is strongly expressed in the Bible from the creation of men till now. He has been shown throughout the Bible in many forms and shapes and always show His love to them like saving the Israelites from Egypt. Although, He did punish them by cursing them to wander in the wilderness for 40 years for their unwillingness to take the promised land. However, He saved them many times from starvation, murder, and other horrible things. As we go through the Bible, God’s love are richly illustrated in it.
The word ‘love’ has been used every day and by everyone. It can be used from a person to person, a person to living things or a person to non-living things. A person to non-living things is just a sense of one’s pleasure or enjoyment that the person is using it whereas a person to livings things and person is a rather complex thing to understand.
Just as with things, a person loving a person or living things is enjoying or taking pleasure of them but have a deep commitment in helping them to achieve their goal or be themselves.
Furthermore, according ichykoo, there is four types of person to person love – Eros love, Storge love, Phileo love, and Agape love. Eros loves is mainly about the intense affection for one another that arises from their sexual urges and lusts for that person. Storge love is love of the community and the family and Phileo love is the love of the soul.
These three types of loves are loves of people that are particularly attract other people to make them feel good or feel pleasure.
Unlike the other three types, Agape love is a unique love that only God can do it; the very essence of God is love. An unconditional love that will always love you no matter who you are, how you feel or what you do. The Agape love, God’s love, will always bring good to those who love him or not. These four loves work together in the life of a person but the one love that maintains the connection between all four loves is the Agape love. Agape love will always be ever-lasting because God is permanent and the others are impermanent. Humans will always love others conditionally. It means that we will love the person based on whether they fulfill the condition, mentally or physically that we set for them or not, like when somebody loves someone because they are cute, hot, kind or others.
A love where it is only convenient and boost the person’s ego and when that dies, so does the love. We love someone based on that condition that can be change from time to time. Once people meet someone that met that condition, they will marry them until the condition is not fulfil, then they divorce them. That is the reason why humans have a high divorce rate. However, God’s love is unconditional. He will always love you no matter what. God’s love is Agape love and will always protect humans from harm and danger.
