Millions of books have tackled the topic of love. Everyone has a love story to tell. Though most of our favorite writers have dedicated much time and effort to describe human love, there’s still a popular misconception about this topic. We may assume we know what love is, but when challenges come, times get hard and relationships get rough, we quickly realize that we have only a superficial understanding of love. Many people talk about love but they don’t show the fruits of love. Since the fall, humans have lost the real meaning of love. The world has a perverted understanding of love which is contrary to God’s word. What many people call ‘love’ is not true love, but pleasant emotions. When God looks down on the earth, He sees no love. No man practices good; all are selfish! The human heart is the most deceitful above all things, and desperately sick beyond cure. It is very wicked, who really knows how bad it is?

Love encompasses all the laws of God. The fact that no man can keep all God’s laws, infers that no man possesses true love. The Law of Moses required a love which is not of this world. It is humanly impossible to love your neighbor as yourself, and even very much impossible to love God with all your heart, soul and body. Where on earth will you find such a sublime love? There is no such a thing as true love in this world; we receive it only from God. God pours His genuine love into our heart through the Holy Spirit. It is a type of love which surpasses all human understanding. It is the infinite love of God in the tiny human heart. No one can say, “I love Jesus more than my own life” except by the Holy Spirit. God is love, His very nature is love and He is the source of true love. God gives us the power to love Him and to love others. Only the one who knows Jesus Christ will display such pure love. If everyone could focus on love, the world would be a better place for all. Love should be the primary focus in every relationship, since the success of every human relationship depends on it.
A great deal of emphasis should be put on how to express love and sexuality in the godly way. This book provides a holistic understanding of love from a biblical perspective and explains all the dimensions of love from the simplest gesture to the deepest affection. The purpose of this book is to provide in-depth teaching on true love, which will enable you to build healthy relationships with God and people. Because healthy relationships are a vital part of a healthy life. You also can’t achieve your potential alone. To become successful in life and reach the highest version of yourself—you need to relate to others with genuine love. We must move from superficial feeling and experience the depth of the eternal nature of love.
