Beloved, we started the week with celebrating our earthly fathers and today we will be looking our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Have we truly forgotten our “Heavenly Father.” looking at the message below, this may not be far from the fact? However, we should consider our ways and if we have wandered afar, we have to come back home. Like the prodigal son, we have to come back to our Father to continue the sweet relationship we once had.

And if we have not had any relationship at all, we must humble ourselves before Him by accepting our Lord Jesus through whom our relationship with the Father is establish.

Jesus called God “His Father and your Father,” are we following the same pattern or have we gone our various ways like sheep without shepherd, our heavenly Father is the first person in Trinity and Creator of the whole world. He is Love personify and Kindness and Mercy has no end. Beloveth, we have a Father whose thought towards are good and not evil. With His Outstretched Hand, He divided the Red Sea so that His beloved will pass through.

He is still in the business of doing good, He has never failed and will never fail. Join me so that we can discover more:

The Forgotten Father

I am ascending to My Father and your Father— to My God and your God.—John 20:17

The theme in this verse—My Father and your Father—is one that I view as among the greatest I have ever tackled, and I approach it with the earnest prayer that as the Father revealed Himself through the “Word made flesh” (God’s most perfect self-revelation), so He might reveal Himself also through the words that are being written about Him here.

It has been said that the Christian faith is essentially a Father movement. Yet theologian Tom Smail suggested that in today’s church the Father is forgotten in precisely the same way that the Spirit was forgotten before the growth of the Pentecostal and charismatic movements. Can this be true? Are we in danger of focusing so much on the work of the Holy Spirit that we forget the Father? I think that in some sections of the church there are evidences that this is the case. We hear much about the Son and much about the Spirit, but how much do we hear about the Father? When our Lord Jesus Christ lived on this earth, He fulfilled many roles—Savior, Shepherd, Deliverer, Healer, Prophet, Life-giver—but the overall purpose of His being here was to restore us to relationship with the Father. Some of the greatest words He ever uttered are the words of our text for today: “I am ascending to My Father and your Father.” Your Father.

Let those words sing their way into your consciousness. Through our Lord’s redemptive work on the cross, God is not just the Father of Jesus. He is our Father too.

Prayer

O God my Father, over these coming weeks give me a new understanding of what it means to have You as my Father. I am standing on the shore of a great and wondrous truth. Help me launch out into the deep. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

In what way is God unknown today?

What are our modern-day idol substitutes?

Beloved, have that sink into your sub-consciousness that God the Father is also our Father. no matter how bad your relationship with your earthly Father, know that there is Father who is perfect and will make things right for you- “Your Heavenly Father”.

Have a lovely weekend and see you next week by God’s grace.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
