You may have a friend for twenty years and for a certain word or on hearing false news, he turns out and changes and you say to him: “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love“ (Rev 2:4). But, about the deep love, the Holy Bible says:
“Many waters cannot quench love” (Song 8:7) .
“For love is as strong as death.” (Song 8:6). “Love never fails.” (1 Cor 13:8).
Whether it was love towards God or towards man.
Love that follows to the cross, like the love of St John to Jesus. Love: “Not in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.” (1 Jn 3:18).
The deepest love is the one that gives, even itself.
As the love of God on the Cross: “For God so loved the world that he gave...” (Jn 3:16).
