The word ‘love’ conjures up so man different things today. A modern dictionary lists 28 various uses for the word: tender affection, warm attachment, intimate passion, strong predication, & amorous benevolence. Yet not of these are complete to define / describe what the Bible speaks of as a fruit of the Spirit. Three words for love are used in the Bible: eros (sensual attraction/passion), phileo (brotherly kindness), and agape (God-like love). The fruit of the Spirit is, you guessed it, agape love. It is the highest form of love, found only in God, because of God, and from God (1 John 4:7). Anything else is something else – a counterfeit, a substitute, a fake.
