“Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.”
When you hear the word “dad,” what feelings come to mind? I hope they are pleasant ones. However, regardless of the strength or weakness of our own dads, thank God for a Heavenly Father that is always loving and just.
Jesus gave us a picture during His earthly ministry of what the Heavenly Father was like. One of my favorite mental pictures of Him is where He was tenderly holding children on His lap, or ministering to the sick or patiently listening to the broken-hearted…what a good dad!
Jesus issued a sobering reminder however – not all people have Jehovah God as their Father. Those that refuse salvation in Christ actually have the devil as their spiritual father (John 8:45). Tragically, they have believed the father of lies and rejected the Heavenly Father.
Dear friend, who’s your daddy? Get to know the Heavenly Father today through His love letter – the Bible!
Thanking Our Wonderful Father Today,
Dr. Tim Pollock, Senior Pastor
