Contemplative Sunset

Let’s explore some keys to answered prayer.


  • The Father publically declared His love for the Son before Jesus had even started His ministry
  • God’s love was not based upon Jesus’ performance
  • You are loved by the Father, the same way that He loved His only Son
  • It is critical that we take hold of this great truth. It affects how we pray

Abiding in His Love

  • How to stay living in/experiencing His love – obey His leading
  • We are loved before we keep His instructions, but by keeping His instructions we can experience the Father’s love and remain there.
  • God had no pleasure in the sacrificial system of the Old Covenant – He was looking for intimacy
  • If Christ does not reign over the mundane events in our lives, He does not reign at all

Understanding the Father’s Love

  • God’s Agapé love is in our hearts because it’s in the Holy Spirit within.
  • Don’t look to events in your life or others to prove the Father’s love – the greatest demonstration was at the cross.
  • If He did this for us while we were sinners, how much more will we be made whole by His life and love!
  • Don’t love the sinner and judge the saint. He is loved by the love of God
