Types of Love
EROS
STORGE - This Greek word describes family love, the affectionate bond that develops naturally between parents and children, and brothers and sisters.
PHILEO - is the type of intimate love in the Bible that most Christians practice toward each other. This Greek term describes the powerful emotional bond seen in deep friendships.
AGAPE - is the highest of the four types of love in the Bible. This term defines God's immeasurable, incomparable love for humankind. It is the divine love that comes from God. Agape love is perfect, unconditional, sacrificial, and pure. Jesus Christdemonstrated this kind of divine love to his Father and to all humanity in the way he lived and died.

What is AGAPE LOVE?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love NEVER fails.
