A Love Relationship with God

God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

<>1 John 4:16, nkjv

The first secret to loving others is to immerse yourself in a love relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—and abide there.

I will never get over the wonder that God the Father and God the Son do not have a working kinship nor a business partnership, nor a brotherly friendship, nor a competing dictatorship, nor a mandatory fellowship, nor an obligatory guardianship, but a love relationship that has existed since before time and space! And you and I enter into that eternal sphere of unconditional love when we abide in Christ.

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
