  • 9. WHAT IS LOVE? Catherine Wybourne said, 'Love is free yet binds us'. Love is more easily experienced than defined. As a theological virtue, by which we love God above all things and our neighbours as ourselves for his sake, it seems remote until we encounter it enfleshed, so to say, in the life of another, in acts of kindness, generosity and self-sacrifice…
  • 10. WHAT IS LOVE? Catherine Wybourne said, …Love's the one thing that can never hurt anyone, although it may cost dearly. The paradox of love is that it is supremely free yet attaches us with bonds stronger than death. It cannot be bought or sold; there is nothing it cannot face; love is life's greatest blessing.’

  • 18. WHAT IS LOVE? At the Cross we learn that Agape-Love involves a commitment to the welfare of another without any consideration of worthiness in the loved one.
  • 19. WHAT IS LOVE? DIFFERENT KINDS OF LOVE ‘PHILEO - LOVE’ ‘AGAPE’ John 3:16 "For God so loved (agape) the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."
