There’s a big difference between someone who’s a father, and someone who fathers. God doesn’t just want to adopt us into His family and then leave us to our own devices — He wants an ongoing, ever-growing, father/child relationship with us! Jesus tells us in Scripture that when we ask our Father for all that we need, He’s faithful to provide for us. Let’s never forget to thank Him for the gifts He gives us out of fatherly love!
As a believer, one has the actual Spirit of God living within! And the Spirit is our liaison Who cries out to the Father on our behalf, connecting us with the God of all eternity, to help us in our time of need!
When a person becomes a child of God, they become part of His family! And like any loving parent (only more complete, perfect, and unconditional!), God wants to provide everything we need to live a life of hope and purpose.
No matter what kind of father we’ve had on earth, God loves us as His own child and wants a personal relationship with us. He loves us enough to have sent His own Son to die so that we could have that relationship – personal and intimate enough to call Him “Daddy”.
