Great article, thank you. Your emphasis on prayer is very important, but the scriptures also tell us that abiding in love is a result of our redemption, of gaining a remission of sins and being born again. Lehi said, "the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory and I am encircled about continually in the arms of his love." Imagine being encircled continually in the arms of his love! Lehi said it was because he was redeemed. Alma and the people of King Benjamin said the same thing; they talk of being forgiven, born of God, and redeemed. They too feel the exquisite joy and love of God and man. This remission of sins and being born again - being redeemed is the key to abiding in Christ's love. Mormon reiterated this in Moroni 8:26 "The remission of sins bringeth meekness and lowliness of heart and because of meekness and lowliness of heart cometh the visitation of the Holy Ghost which comforter filleth with hope and perfect love."
