Love is a powerful emotion.  It is affection and/or attachment for another person.  Love can be expressed physically and emotionally.  Biblically, love is "other centered."  It is sacrificial.  Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this but that he lay his life down for his friend,” (John 15:13).  However, “agape love” is not always “divine love.”  It can be an intense dedication and commitment to something since we see that the Pharisees loved (agape) their high seats (Luke 11:43).
