On Sunday, we celebrate Father’s Day, which naturally makes many of us mindful of our earthly fathers. But, did you know that you also have a Heavenly Father? Think of the purest love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount—that is the measure of our Heavenly Father's love for us. In fact, He loves us so much, that He sent His only son, Jesus, to take on our sin, so that we might live holy and blameless with Him in eternity!
You see, before Jesus was born of Mary, He lived in perfect glory, intimacy, and unity with His Father and the Holy Spirit. After the fall of Adam and Eve, God desired you and I to share in that same love, intimacy, and glory. Jesus’ death and resurrection reveal to us the very desire of our Heavenly Father's heart, which is to be with us for all eternity.
We are important to God because we are His children. No matter our flaws or mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us. He knows and loves you, is mindful of you, hears your prayers and knows the desires of your heart. So, this Father’s Day, may you have joy knowing that your Heavenly Father has shown His love for you, not just in words, but also through the the most amazing gifts of love, forgiveness and eternal life in Christ Jesus.
