A father’s love?
I bet a lot of you are waiting for me to say something spiritual and deep.
Alright, Give me a second.
Let’s go back to the beginning of it all,
In the beginning Our Father, God, created the heavens and the earth.
He created angels and animals; both male and female,
and then he created mankind.
Then Adam and Eve fell, but out of his love came mercy and with mercy he judged.
So that man shall not be trapped in this sinful flesh for an eternity,
He cursed man to return to dust,
and then he cursed the ground for man’s sake.
See, In the beginning was the Word and the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us and we beheld His glory.
The Word dwelt amongst us; bondservants of sin- and served us his life,
served us his life to propitiate, redeem, justify and reconcile.
Just incase you are confused, let me break it down for you.
He served us his life to
PROPITIATE us by His blood
JUSTIFY us before his sight
RECONCILE us to Himself
PRESENT us holy and blameless before Him
FUFILL all righteousness that we couldn’t do under the law
REDEEM us from the power of sin, guilt of sin and the curse of the law.
and he did all this by dying in our place
Greater love has no one than this, than He who lay down His life for His friends.
Now after doing all this to reinstate us,
He left with us the Holy Spirit, to teach, convict, regenerate,guide and be a witness.
So since we are on the topic of ‘Our Father’s Love”,
Let me tell you what my father’s love is to me and what it does for me.
Although you really don’t have a choice as you are already reading this.
A Father’s love is 2nd Corinthians 13:4-7:
His love is patient enough to wait for us to learn to know him.
His love is kind enough to send His ONLY begotten son to die in our place.
His love does not impose His way but gives us free will.
His love is never resentful in that He forgives once we confess.
His love is so pure He only rejoices in truth.
His love is so meek he came down earth in the form of a slave to serve us slaves.
My father’s love gives hope ,
Hope that we shall resurrect one day.
My father’s love is eternal .
My father’s love comforts the suffering.
My father’s love restores the dead back to life; spiritual, physical mental and emotional.
My father’s love blesses.
My father’s love favours.
I shall declare my father’s love on the mountain tops.
I shall scream for all who can hear to hear.
My father loves me, this I know,
for the Bible tells me so.
Why do you sit down and think yourselves so posh to praise his name?
You are alive because of your father’s love!
You move because of your father’s love!
Who are you without Him?
He loves us so dearly, all he wants is for us to fellowship with Him.
He loved us first.
He is the FIRSTBORN of the DEAD.
The ALPHA and the OMEGA.
The BEGINNING and the END.
Our Father is Love.
