Definition of Love

1 John 3:16  "We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."
John 15:13  "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."
1 Thes. 2:8 "so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."
1 John 4:9-11 "In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. "

This is an attempt to define the term love, based on what the Bible says about the word.  
Love - Sacrificial giving from a pure, full heart that is allowing the flow of God's heart for mankind to flow through it.
Truth - "Everything as God sees it."  Jessie Penn Lewis

I started a little group called 'Love truth' on fb and I just wanted to "define the terms."
