In this volume is found the culmination of a sixteen year search for light on these questions. The journey began when I was reminiscing about the birth of my first son. I thought on the moment I first held him in my arms and the deep sense of love I felt for him. To have a taste of such divine emotions brought me into an encounter with God that impressed upon me the thought that the feelings I had for my son were an expression of God’s love for His Son and consequently His earth born children.

Our lives are bombarded with a constant drone of messages telling us that success only comes from proving to ourselves and the world that we have what it takes, that we have the right stuff.

Deep in the heart of each human being is the need to feel secure in their sense of worth. Everything we do in life is influenced by our beliefs in where our value comes from. In this book, you’ll find the Biblical view of where our worth comes from, with a focus on the role that family relationships play when it comes to establishing our sense of value. You’ll be taken on journey along the history of humanity to learn the contrast between God’s family kingdom, where each member is secure in their sense of worth, and Satan’s family kingdom, where each individual strives to secure their own sense of worth. The insights from this book are bound to change your life, as they provide clarity on your own family relationships, and a clearer understanding of God and His Son.
With echoes of the Sanctuary, Song of Solomon and Pilgrim's Progress, trace one man's journey through obstacle, trial and challenge, to discover, sell all, and fall in love with Jesus, the Son of the Father.
If we worship a God who loves because of inherent qualities then we will do the same. We become what we behold. Yet if we worship a Son who was given all things and rests in the assurance of His Father’s sweet benevolent Agape love, then we can be transformed into the image of this love and love as God loves His Son.
Our God is Agape and in Himis no Eros at all
He that has the Son has life. Why is this so? For in the Son of God resides the pure heart of an obedient Son to His Father. He always does those things that please the Father. He also has the Father’s blessing and deep affection. The heart of the Son rests perfectly in His Father’s love.
