My Father Is …

My Father Is . . .

  • Love – John 3:16 ~ “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
  • Caring – Matthew 6:26 ~ “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, no gather into barns: yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are you not much better than they?”
    • Man is a higher being, on a much higher level of creation, than animals. He is more noble and excellent, a spiritual being made in the image of God and capable of a personal relationship with God.
      The believer is a child of God. God is the Creator of birds, but He is the Father of believers.
  • Forgiving – Psalms 103:12-13 ~ “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.”
    • pitieth – to love, love deeply, have mercy, be compassionate, have tender affection, have compassion
  • Giving – Romans 8:32 ~ “He spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
    • God acted FOR the believer NOT against him.
  • Our Redeemer – Job 19:25 ~ “For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.”
