According to Oyedepo:
"We must first understand that love is the greatest spiritual asset of every believer.lt is what defines your worth in the race of life, because that is your connectivity to divinity.Divinity is full of wonders, and love is our connectivity to divinity!"
"Every certified lover of God is a living wonder on earth.lt is written,Eye hath not seen,nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man,the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him(l Corinthians 2:9)."
"That is what makes love the master key to the world of wonders.When you are truly grounded in the love of Christ, you become supernaturally connected to divinity; and that is what guarantees your dominion".
"Love is the greatest of all spiritual virtues(l Corinthians 13:13). So, without this virtue at work in your life, you will remain spiritually poor, beggarly, and the struggles of your life will continue"
"Love is your spiritual connectivity to God; that is why it is the platform for the flow and operation of signs and wonders"
"What is love in this context?
"If you don't know what love is, you will not know when it is at work in you."
(1)"Love can be defined as God-first lifestyle:That simply means,God having the first place in all your considerations.The "God-first lifestyle" is loving God with all your heart,soul and mind(Matthew 22:36-40). When you make room for God first, you become a man and a woman wondered at"
(2)"It is a kingdom priority lifestyle:But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). What Jesus meant was,seek ye first the advancement, promotion and expansion of the kingdom-in righteousness not faking it, and all these things that others are dying to get, shall be added unto you.Jesus said,upon love hangs the whole commandment.So when the law of love is fulfilled,the blessings of Deuteronomy 28:1-12 flows naturally into your life"
(3)"Love is identifying with Jesus:Love is, publicly identifying with Christ and His word, wherever you find yourself (Mark 8:38). When you are truly in love with God, you will identify with Him openly, publicly and everywhere"
(4) "It is placing God above all else including self... When you come to the point where you place God above all else--including self, you are set to be released as a wonder to your world".
(5) "Love is, loving what God loves.And God's greatest love,is the salvation of souls(2 Peter 3:9). When you are truly in love, you are never ashamed of telling about Jesus"
"The Bible calls love the greatest.lt is greater than faith and hope.Love will always deliver what faith cannot deliver (l Corinthians 13:13)...Love never fails, because God is love"
(6) "We prove the sincerity of our love by our giving.lf you are not a giver, you are not a lover(l John 3:17-18). The love of God is a giving love.You don't increase by what you keep; you increase by what you give.So, you are not blessing anyone by your giving, you are simply refreshing the person for God to bless you.When the love of God overwhelms you, giving becomes a natural lifestyle.And love is what empowers you to lay down the unimaginable for the inexplainable to come your way (John 10:17-18).
