THEME: GOD OUR FATHER
“The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
-The Father loves the Son and has given Him authority over all things. He who believes in the Son, believes in the Father and has everlasting life, but he who does not believe in the Son is condemned. “The Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him” (John 5:22-23). As we honor God, we are called to respect Him, fear Him and obey His word which is love. We are also called to obey our father and mother which has a promise of long life, and since God is our Father; we should honor Him. We also read in John 14:21 that, “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” If we honor God we should believe in Him and keep His commandments through love. Love rejoices in truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, love never fails, and if we love we have eternal life.
God our Father is merciful and full of love. He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all things belong to Him. He is Omnipotent, Omniscience and Omnipresent, and His Kingdom has no end. His ways are just and true and calls us to obey His voice. God is gracious and faithful and full of kindness. His love for us endures forever and His kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom. If we love then we abide in God and Him in us. We should endeavor to have a relationship with God our Father built on love and the fear of Him. A personal relationship with God must be built on love for without love we can do nothing. If we love our neighbor who we see then we show love for God and His love remains a pillar of eternal life in us. Through His great love God has made us His children through His beloved Son Jesus Christ, that we may believe in Him and be saved. We are reminded to humble ourselves before God, repent our sins and receive His grace. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are co-heirs with Him and the Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are His children and thus kings and priests, and are called to rule on earth by bearing much fruit that remains. We should then hold fast love, for God is love and love never fails.
Thank You for loving us merciful Father. Your love for us is everlasting and Your kingdom has no end. Your precepts are true and there is no deception in them. Your wisdom is perfect and mercy for us is has no limit. Your judgments are true and Your ways a reflection of perfect light. Fill us with Your wisdom merciful Father that we may always hear Your word and keep it. May Your gospel Father reach to all nations and Your salvation fill all Your people. May Your Light in us reach many people who see it and receive Your salvation. Fill our hearts with Your living water that we may never thirst merciful Father. May Your grace, mercy and peace Lord our Father be with us always, our families, nation and the entire world. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen
