What Does Love Look Like?

“The first time the word “love” appears in the Bible is when Abraham was going to offer up his son Isaac as a sacrifice to God. But the most interesting thing about that particular Hebrew word for love is the character definition of each letter: Aleph, Hey, and Beyt. “Aleph” means ox, that which represents sacrifice. And “Hey” means breath, or life as the arms being raised, but “Beyt“ means house or family. The scripture says that Abraham saw the resurrection of Christ when he was about to sacrifice his son Isaac and was withheld by the angel of the Lord. Could somebody tell me what love looks like? It looks like the sacrifice of man who opened up his arms for the human family on the cross. John 3:16, says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus says there is no greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. So then, Jesus tells his disciples to love one another as I have loved you,” The Father declared his love for us in giving His Son for us!!”
