Our earthly fathers existed before us–we have
proceeded from them. However, each person
in every nation has been created by God. He is
truly THE FATHER OF US ALL!
We bear some likeness to our earthly fathers
whether or not they cared for, taught or trained
us in the way we should go.
God created mankind in His own image with the
expressed desire that we would live close enough
to Him so His nature would become our own—
perpetuating His magnificent likeness in the earth.
Even as some have never known their natural
father, many have never discovered the nature of
their Father in Heaven.
It is not as if He has abandoned us, but contrary to
that, He seeks for each to receive His fathomless
love—with daily relationship with Him! Do not
hold Him at arms-length—EMBRACE HIM!
(Lord, May we not reject nor neglect Your strong
desire to participate in our present living!)
“Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness…
Know that the Lord He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.”
