Love is The Greatest Gift

Who is Love? God is love. (John 13:34)

Biblical love may be defined (from Greek word agape) as to welcome or entertain (a person), to be fond of (someone) and dearly love. Many consider that this word represents divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful love. True love never fails.
