One Love: Ladies' Retreat Study Guide
The Women of the Gathering Network 2020 Ladies' Retreat Study Guide.Our theme this year for our Ladies' Retreat is ONE LOVE Colossians 3:14 Beyond all these things put on and wrap yourselves in unselfish love, which is the perfect bond of unity, for everything is bound together in agreement when each one seeks the best for others. We will be journeying into the heart of the Father to identify His infinite love for us. Not just for who He is, but who He desires to be in each of us. We will learn how to love Him more and release His precious love to one another, in a way that is without hypocrisy and selfishness. Truly being consumed in Him and allowing that burning love to be released to others through our obedience to go and give.At One Love Ladies' Retreat, we desire to release worship and teachings that will establish a oneness in our love for the Lord and towards one another causing us to move both vertically and horizontally in our expression of love. When our relationship is in right communion with the completeness of the Trinity, we will walk in the ONENESS that is identified in John 17 where Jesus prayed Father let them be ONE as we are ONE.In this study guide you will find teachings by Tonja Peters, Marina Provencio, Irene Delgado, Candice Peters, Lorraine Tapia and Judy Bauer. Each one has written what "ONE LOVE" means to them. Each comes from a beautifully different perspective. We pray that you are blessed, and come to know our Heavenly Father, His Son, and His Spirit in a deeper way than you have known before.❤Finding the ONE “See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 Salvation is just a springboard to a thriving relationship with God! Everything that we do needs to be rooted and grounded in Christ alone and in the Fathers love. We love because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). This love is foundational. All intimacy will flow from this revelation. When we have FOUND the ONE, we begin a process of pursuing Him. This is a pursuit of my Father. In pursuing Him, we fall in love with the secret place and we begin to know Him for ourselves. In the Hebrew, KNOW is YADA- which is personal and intimate.When we have FOUND the ONE –in the secret place, identity begins to be established. Identity is the result of intimacy. Identity is key! When you don’t know who you are you will be insecure, a slave to fear, you’ll have a works-based mentality. You will be trying to attain your worth and value instead of simply living from this place of love and identity. Identity comes from finding the One.In this season of FINDING the ONE, I am seen, known, and loved unconditionally.
