The Bible speaks of several different kinds of love. There is God’s love for His children, parental love, brotherly love and married love. It even tells us that we are to love ourselves. The defining characteristic of the Christian is his love for others. Love for Jesus is followed by our responsibility to love and support others of God’s children.
If there is any theme throughout the entire collection of Bible verses, it is that of love. There is the familiar creed of believers found in John 3:16, and an entire chapter devoted to the topic in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. You could describe God’s Word as an entire love letter to the human race. There are hundreds of verses that use the word “love” in various ways.
There are passages about brotherly love or friendship, divine love characterized by the Greek word “agape” and romantic love or “eros”. Jesus reminded his disciples during his last discussion with them that they would be recognized by their love for each other. He spent a significant portion of this pre-crucifixion evening telling his followers how much love He and the Father have for them.The extraction of a single verse or group of verses and forming it into a motto is one way to feel better, but a deeper approach is important in order to grasp the vast depths of God’s love for us. He want us to reflect His love and to be a channel to demonstrate that love to others.

Bible verses about Gods Love to us
John 3:16 “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
1 John 3:16-18 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
What Jesus said about Love
Matthew 5:43-45 You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Mark 12:30-31 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
