Your Father

You’ve had an earthly father.  Whether you knew him or not, whether your liked him or not, you had one.  Just as surely, you have a spiritual Father. 

If giving attention to a loving earthly father makes sense, how much more does giving attention to a loving heavenly Father.

Your flesh will one day die.  Your spirit lives forever.  God is the Father of your spirit – the true, lasting, and eternal you. 

You were made in your Father’s image.  The more you spend time with Him, the more that image will come out in your thinking and behavior.

Don’t think of God as a distant entity, far removed from your own existence.  Think of him as your Father, your loving Father.  Yes, He is the judge and sole sovereign of heaven and earth.  Yes, He possesses untold strength and power to control all events in the universe great and small.  Even so, He is still your Father.  Let Him love and guide you so that your time on this earth goes as well as possible.  Repent of living according to your own interests.  Live for His interests.  That is, make moral excellence your chief interest.  Honor your Father.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.
