"The Mystery of Love" by Evang. Timothy Babalola




I would have loved to give the definition of Love, but Love have no definition.If you can define love, then it's not an agape kind of love. If your love is based on some conditions or criteria, then it's not the God type of love.If you love your partner because of his/her shape, money, connections, beauty, influence;If you can state the reason why u love someone, then it is conditioned and not based on the standard of God's Love.
Let me give the God standard of Love;
 "  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. " (John 3: 16).



Let's take some insights from this Bible verse, although it looks simple but embedded in mystery
For God so love the world..... The word world is a collection of everything found on earth. Not only man, It's not restricted to Christians alone.


For God so love the world...... Not for God so love the saints;not the apostles, Including those that persecutes him. The love of God is for all➡ irrespective of your tribe or religion, just be willing to respond to his love that's all.


The basis at which God love the world is nothing to talk about because there would be no worthiness in man for God to love him because if his sinful nature but God still loves him and sent him his son to redeem him into his family.
If you love someone based on some criteria, the day the criteria is no more, the love gets expired.No wonder we have a lot of divorce issues because most relationships are based on fake love. We are in the dispensation in which fake is celebrated than original. Fake love, fake money, fake look from the females, Make-ups, too much of fake things outside there!!!!


I know of a family that got divorced just in a day of their marriage.The husband used to see the female mostly on make-up, when they got married, you know the wife will have to refresh to get things started with the husband. When the husband saw the real her, he asked for his wife. She said she's the one. The husband lamented and they couldn't copulate as husband and wife.The family eventually divorced. That's so pathetic but I will like us to look @ some morals from the story.



The man built his love on physical love which shouldn't be;Love have no definition!
Until u don't know the reason u love someone, u don't love genuinely!!!!



Some people love their partner because he gives him/her sex; Although sex enhances intimacy between married couples ,but it's not the gauge for love.
The first thing that comes with genuine love is giving.
"  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. " (John 3: 16)


 Because God loved the world, he gave to the world a means to get eternal life.he didn't love man based on any criteria or to be at Man's Mercy. He loved the world without any traceable reasons.
 If u truly love God, u will give him your totality, your dignity, purity and everything to make him proud and happy with you. You shouldn't build your relationship on pseudo love  instead build on genuine love.



Money is not love , so don't build your love on Money. Genuine love is not conditioned, but giving could be conditioned and showing of affections could be based on some criteria. When u love someone genuinely, u will do everything and sacrifice what it takes to make the person thrive and be successful.



Giving is a gift. Giving might not come with love, but love comes with giving.Let me unviel u a mystery to us  (Genesis 2 )
 ------------
 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

   Prior the fall of man, Men love totally with all their heart. Immediately God took eve to Adam, he loved her 👍💯, but after the fall, man can no longer love woman 100% because of the first disappointment. That was why Apostle Paul said husbands love your wife.
" Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;"
(Ephesians 5: 25)
https://zbible.page.link/kjv-strg.
Since then, man grow in love and it needs to be watered.
After the fall of man, the feeling of betrayal have eaten down into him but love still elevates him.
The best lover on earth is Adam, even after the fall and been sent out of the garden of Eden, he never stopped loving Eve.
Men grow in love while Women fall in love.
You need to nurture the growth of your love in your partner because several forces could wave it out.


Things like:
-Environmental pressure
- Stress from work
- Hyper busyness
 - The fear of Responsibilities and how to handle them
- getting too much of attention from an opposite sex especially if he/she is a public figure.
- Duress.
Things like that should be worked upon to avoid loosing one's partner into the cold arms of Strangers.
Love is a sweet and good thing, Love like God, love unconditionally and love with all your heart. Don't as well forget that love comes with giving.
   May the Lord bless his word.
