The Ultimate Father (Selected Passages)
Introduction: Happy Father’s Day to all of our dads! No doubt we all had imperfect earthly fathers, but today I want us all to see a picture of the ultimate Father, God. God is our model of the ultimate father in the truest sense of the word. Only through Jesus as the Son of God, do we have true knowledge of His Father, God.
Conclusion: I don’t think for a minute that any of us earthly dad’s will ever reach the level of the ultimate Father (But dads, we love and appreciate you as you are!) But, I also believe we all want to do the best job we can of modeling the kind of Father God is to us, to our kids and family. Jesus said, “to know the Father we must first know the Son.” Do you know Him today? I want to invite you (If you never have) to come and receive Jesus into your life. It is then and only then that God [sends] “… forth the Spirit of His Son your hearts, [and we can begin calling God]… our “Abba, Father too!” (Gal 4:6)
Dads as we commit to make our model, God “The Ultimate Father” Be assured, whatever you need, I want you to know that the heavenly Father is there to help you and make you the best father you can be each day! Happy Father’s Day to all our dads – we do love and appreciate you!
