Celebrating the Fatherhood of God
Happy Father's Day!
Father’s Day is a day meant to celebrate and remember the wonderful Fathers in our lives and there is no greater Father in our lives than that of our Heavenly Father so I want to take time Sunday to consider Our Heavenly Father. Now some could hear this and say, "Sure, Thomas, of course we will talk about God the Father on Father's day, predictable." To that I would reply, "Yes, maybe so, however the Fatherhood of God is no throw away topic. J.I. Packer has this to say on the Fatherhood of God...
“What is a Christian? The richest answer I know is that a Christian is one who has God as Father. If you want to know how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God’s child and having God as his Father. If this is not the thought that prompts and controls his worship and prayers and his whole outlook on life, it means that he does not understand Christianity very well at all.”
-J.I. Packer, “Knowing God”
Our identity as Christians, in large part, flows out of an understanding of who we are as children of God. Knowing who God is as your Father should fill you with great joy, unshakable hope, and rock solid security.
Join us Sunday June 19th as we celebrate the fatherhood of God!
