The Father’s love
1 John 3:1 – See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
Sadly for a lot of people today, fatherly love is difficult to comprehend. But I promise that our Father in Heaven’s love is nothing less than perfect. It’s big, whole, and it never fails to reach us.
Our Father is a father who provides. Matthew 6:25 tells us not to worry about what we’re going to eat or wear, because our Father will give us what we need. He is our provision.
Our Father is a father who loves unconditionally. He welcomes us Home with open arms no matter where we have been or what we have done. He is a good Father, and nothing we can ever do will separate us from His love.
Our Father is a father who guides and protects us. In the Bible He is referred to as our shepherd (John 10), who pulls us out of the ditch when we fall in, protects us from predators and gently guides us to where we need to go. He knows us all by name, sees when one of us gets lost and He never abandons us.
Do you know who your Father is? Do you know how loved you are by Him?
Luke 15:17 – “When he came to his senses, he said, “… I will set out and go back to my father.” “
