(1 john 4:5)
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God and every one that love is born of God, and know God"

Every day, our love nature is tested by difficult people or circumstances that try to make us act contrary to who we really are. There are times when out of fear, you may be tempted to lie against a friend as a means to escape trouble or punishment. That's when you ought to be bold to walk in love, for that's how to gain the victory. The Bible says, "There is no fear in love but perfect love cast out fear "When you walk in love, you'll only see the best in others because love is the purity of God. We all ought to only see the good in others, not because we're naive, but because love power can change the bad. Walking in love is a high place in God, and you must be determined to walk in love always. If you're born again, the love of God is already in you That means you have the ability to love like God, but you have to make the choice to walk in love, for love is a choice.
Love is the most potent force in the universe. Little wonder the bible declare that love never fails. Love is the nature of God. In other words, not only is God a loving heavenly father, he is love personified. He function by the love principal and a his kids we're to do the same. Walking in love therefore ought to come to come natural with you as a child of God. He let us know that walking in love is the most essential quality to be manifested by the believer. That's what make you a true disciple. You can change your relationship for the better if you'll learn to walk in love towards everyone around you. Walking in love will make you overlook any offence or ill-trearment form may be an antagonistic in law, an uncooperative brother or sister, a nagging boss, or an obstinate subordinate
God doesn't make you love someone He's already put His love in your spirit. Learn to relate with people from God's perspective. See them the way God sees them, and that's the right way to live. If you walk in love, you won't steal, slander or malign anyone.

Choose to love. Many haven't realized it, but the solution to the many broken marriages, friendships and relationships is love. Even when others rebuff you as you try to reach out to them in love, don't be discouraged. Love is the greatest power in the universe, and if applied correctly, will eventually melt the hardest heart. It doesn't matter how unkind and unfriendly some folks may get towards you, love them all the same. When you walk in love you'll never fail or stumble in life, for love never fail. Prove that you're indeed a true disciple.

First of all, what is true love?

  1. True love is a choice. It is an act of will. "I love you means I choose you" . (A choice is a costly thing, therefore,choose wisely).
  2. True love is understanding the value, worth, significance of a person or thing to God, your life and humanity. Love us understanding value. Love is "I perceive your significance in my life". The only part of love that is unconditional us choice.
  3. True love is honor. Honor= recognition, acknowledgement and rewarding of value understood. 1 Sam 2:30 Honor must be reciprocated. True honor is mutual. One-sided honor is selfishness.
What love is not?
Love us not impulse
Love is not feelings. Feelings are temporary dispositions based on something we consider pleasant about someone or an object. Feelings can also be deceptive and not an accurate measure of love.
Building anything based on feelings and emotions is a guarantee for failure.

Dimensions of love (Eph 3:17&18)
If all these are not captured in your ideas of love, forget it, nothing like 3 out of 4.
  1. Passion: There's no love if it cannot be expressed in passion. Passion is a strong or extravagant fondness of something, desire for someone or something. Admiration also qualifies to be called passion. The proof of passion is pursuit. PS 8:3-5. Anything that shame won't let you pursue, forget about it. When you're mindful of anything, then there's passion.
  2. Commitment: This is the willingness to give your time,self and energy in something or someone you believe in. There's no emotion to commitment. Commitment is the state or quality of being dedicated.
  3. Pleasure: The is delight, gratification. PS 16:11. If there's no pleasure in what tkjfd loving, you'll feel cheated. There must be pleasure captured in your idea of love. Your service and spirituality shouldn't strangle pleasure.
  4. Sacrifice: This is giving up something you consider valuable for the sake of someone or a better cause. Sacrifice talks of constraints, inconvenience, pain. No sacrifice, no love. Sacrifice is and index for love. Sacrifice is not about convenience.
NOTE: whether you're a believer or not,if you subscribe to these four dimensions,you'll be successful.

Love is the greatest gift that God ever gave mankind. Love is not a small thing. Love is the biggest reality that the human mind will ever encounter. God is love. Whoever love is of God.

Looking at the lives of the first disciples,we can see that they all had little love in their lives.we can see men renowned for their anger,men who crave power and position, men who doubted, men who loved money and what money could bring and one great cynic. There was not one of them that was known for love. The Lord came to change all this.

In a word full of war, death ,disease,slavery,hunger and lack, it is only natural that most people would not find it easy to give any second thoughts to love. The world seems so harsh a place for any talk of love. It always seems better to concentrate on winning the other battles than the battle of love.

God is love and so he gave the best he had. This is the sacrifice God made in order to have his lost children back in as sons. Love is life,often we think that life is taking what the world has to offer. Life is receiving what God has to give.

Love cannot be concealed, the nature of love shows. Hatred, on the other hand , is mostly hidden. We cannot claim to love one another secretly or to love is for demonstration.

Love is identity,no father , mother, brother or sister loves the family, we identify with those we love.

Walking in love


Love is an intense feeling of affection and care towards another person.

Love is a deep or abiding liking for something or someone.

Love is double step higher than like, to love is beyond normal.

W her you love someone you don't easily let go.

We can now say that walking in love means moving in a motion higher than likeness.

When we walk in love, we obey God's commandment which says " love your neighbour as your self."

Let's the book of 1 Corinthians 13: 4- 8

:Love is patient and kind love does not envy or boast it is not arrogant

or rude. It does not insist on its own way it is not irritable or resentful

:it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away as for tongues, they will cease as for knowledge, it will pass away.

From what is written above, to walk in love :

1. We must patient and kind. Your own strength might be someone else's weakness and your weakness might be someone else's strength. O
You have to be patient and kind because you're are different from other people.

2. To walk in love, you should not boast. Why do you boast? OK, you boast so that others can feel bad, you boast to earn respect. No, it shouldn't be, we should all in live love

3. For you to walk in love, always have it at the back of your mind that not all your suggestions Will be accepted. You should not insist on your own way all the time .


4. To keep walking in love, you've got to rejoice in the truth .

Hmmm! There atimes whereby you will get provoked by people and you will get angry and annoyed to them but at the end of this, you are required to love. Love is good, love is awesome, love is light but are we walking in love. Like I often say, the excelling of any other form of love relationship is based on the fact that the love of God is firstly established. God is love, God has in all ways and dimensions show to us that he loved us, He has expressed it both in words as in actions John.3.16 - For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. This tells us how well God has worked in love and thereby he requested us to do so.
It will not be easy to walk in love if one does not love God firstly, it will not be easy to walk in love if one does not have a relationship with the holyspirit. Sincerely, these things might look simple, these things might appear to be nothing but I tell you, aside these two things, any professing of love is not true. You can't sincerely love God outside the intervention of the holyspirit, you can't sincerely love God if you do not know and have the holyspirit because it is not easy to walk in love. Matthew 5:43-45 - You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, to show that you are the children of your Father Who is in heaven for He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers [alike].

We must all walk in love with one another, that is the essences of love itself. Like imagine limiting love to just epithema and Eros like that's just the beginning if it all and the end . the reason why there's no one that can completely explain the meaning of love

@David: sorry I was dizzy when writing my last comment and I fell asleep.


So like I was saying that's why no one can actually give an apt definition for love because we don't even know the complete meaning of love yet. What does the holy Bible say about this ? Its say that God is love , that's what we all need to to know, being able to be as sacrificial as God for one another is what should be tagged good love .

I remember the tale of two love birds from my town, well my town is a mountainous countryside that is designed with many rocky parts and blessed with many streams, the vegetation of this town is historically green all through the rainy season and that gives our town the name is has among many other town.

The home of love, you will agree with me that this beautiful town that is blessed with beautiful landscapes is really the home of love, is it the variety of birds that are there ? Or the way tourist flock in to the town to spend holidays and honey moon, it wasn't a new thing to find new couple making out in one of our beaches .epic right ?.

Then came these beautiful couples who were just newly wedded to the town of love, they were so much in love with one another that it was obvious for all to see as they walked the shores together hand in hand, they swam together, visited the various beautiful parks together , well things are not always as they seem as the lady and guy seem like the best thing ever ..

But this love story was cut short by the inevitable and unexpected happening, it happens to be that there was more story than what the town that welcomed this two love birds saw, the lady who seems like the perfect description of a Greek goddess was perhaps not who she posse to be.

... Hmmmn. This is really very true, we must possess love as a virtue and also make sure that we walk in love because that is what we have been called into as children of God, the word of God makes us know that how we know that we are God's children is when we love because love is of God and God is love too in 1 John 4 verse 8. And it further said that any man that does not love have not known God so our knowing God is not just dependent on speaking in tongues, seeing visions, etc it is mainly authenticated by how much we actually love indeed. 1 Corinthians 13 verse 1-3 made us know that no matter what the spiritual realm we are functioning in, if we don't love then we are NOTHING. To be something in the kingdom is by love. Let us never stop walking in love because both that is our nature as children of God.

Love is Divine,God is love and everyone that claims to be follower of Christ must live as he lived,
One of the command God gave us is to Love one another,praying for those who hate us as well.
When one walks in Love,it is as working in purity,you do everything out of love...there's this kind of joy.
Love is perfect.John4:7-21 elaborate what love is all about, the concept and the basis of Love. We do not have the new nature of Christ if we have no love in us.
Someone said "often time when you ask someone if he/she loves God,the general answer is 'yes' of course I love God,who doesn't?. But loving God goes beyond professing it with mouth, it comes with action. It is your action that shows whether you love him or not.
A practical example is *if you are so used to hearing from someone on daily basis like somebody so dear to you and they really cannot do without giving you a call everyday, but then you didn't hear from them at all for a whole day which is something that has never has never happened before, you tend to get worried. Because you love them and you're fond of them* same way, when you say you Love God, not hearing from him or speaking to him should be a challenge. Our soul shld long for kingdom matters, for the things of God our desire should be to make Him proud just like we'll like go make the people we love proud.

But before we can claim to love God, then we must have known how to love our neighbours, our brothers, people around us . Hebrew 13:1 says "Let brotherly love continue
John4:7-21also says"If a man says I love God and hateth his brother,he is a liar,for the that loveth not his brother who he hath seen,how can he love God whom He hath not seen.
Therefore love is also a practical thing, when we demonstrate it among our fellow being, God himself will be pleased with us

There is no way you can only please God as regards serving him through love. it's your love for a person/ thing that makes you do things you initially would'nt do or make other people see you as stupid or dumb.

Christ's love is divine and it's contagious too, you can't love God and not show love to your fellow human.
The strongest emotion in the world for me, still is Love.

walking in love .is just as Christ also loved you and gave himself to us as offering and a sacrifice to God as a liven sacrifice. walking in love is to walk according to his commandments. we love truly only when we endeavour to obey the law of God. walk in love is expressed our entire relationship with god and mankind .Eph 5 vs 2. and walk in love. as Christ also has loved us. and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. 1John 4 vs 8. he that loves not knows not God. for God is love. 1cor 14 vs 1. follow after charity. and desire spiritual gifts. but rather that you may prophesy. Leviticus chapter 19 vs 18. you shall not avenge. nor bear any grudge against the children of your people. but you shall love your neighbour as yourself. I am the Lord.. Deut 6 vs 5. and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart. and with all your soul. and with all your might..Eze 20 vs41. I will accept you with your sweet savor. when I bring you out from the people. and gather you out of the country wherein you have been scattered. and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen

Walking in love is a Commandment and not just an option. As a child of God we are to love everyone around us because Jesus which is our role model demonstrated his love towards us.

The love God has for us can not be quantified because he loved us unconditionally. There's nobody that can demonstrate unconditional love to us except our Father which is in Heaven. So if God can love us unconditionally there's no excuse for us not to love other people around us.

Some believers claimed to love other people but when there's a little misunderstanding they refused to forgive them. Unforgiving shows that you haven't come into the full knowledge of how God want us to love our neighbors because when you understand what it take to love other people you can never allow Unforgiving to reside in you.

Walking in love makes you overlook all wrongs done to you by anybody because the spirit of Love makes you forgive instantly and also makes you live in peace with other people. Christ redeemed us into his marvelous light simply because he loved us and he doesn't want us to perished. That's why you should always be concerned about the lost souls.

Always walk in love and there's no obstacles that can stand on your way. Never allow hatred/envy to have a way in your life instead let love lead and you will live a fulfilled life.

walking in love. it's means that when the Christ may dwell in your heart by faith. that you. being rooted and grounded in love. and walk in love. as Christ also has loved us. and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. nevertheless let everyone of you in particular so love his wife even as himself. and the wife see that she reverence her husband Matthew 22 vs 37-40. Jesus said to him. you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (38) this is the first and greatest commandment. (39) and the second is like to it. you shall love your neighbour as yourself. (40) on these two commandments hang all the Law and the prophets. 1john 4 vs16- 19 .and we have known and believe the love that God has to us. God is love. and he that dwell in love dwell in God. and God in him. (17) herein is our love made perfect that we may have boldness in the day of Judgment. because as he is. so are we in this world. (18) there is no fear in love. but perfect love casts out fear. because fear has torment. he that fear is not made perfect in love. (19) we love him. because he first loves us
