I will never be able to completely understand nor comprehend the depth of God's love for me, though I am thankful for His love and often take it for granted.
It is hard to understand that the creator of the universe, not only cares for me, but wants to be an active and loving Father to me.
Thank You Father God, for loving me first (1 John 4:19)Thank you for loving me enough to give Your only Son to die for me, even when I did not care about you and was deep in sin. (Romans 5:8; John 3:16) Thank You Father for drawing me to Jesus to be saved. (John 6:44) Thank You Father God for saving me even though I was not perfect, but because of my repentance and faith in Jesus by Your grace alone. (Eph. 2:8-9)
I thank You Father God that Your love for me does not change nor waver like my faithfulness to You does. I thank You that You continue to love me even though I am not perfect and continue to transform me into the image of Your Son, for Your glory.
I thank You that like a loving Father, everything You do for me is motivated by your love for me, even when You correct me and give me rules to follow...it is out of Your love for me and Your willingness to protect me.
I thank you Father that You know everything about me and see everything I do everyday, even when no one else sees and You love me anyway. I thank You Father God that I do not have to put on a mask with You and pretend that I am perfect and do no wrong in order to get You to love me. I thank You Father that I do not have to do anything to earn Your unconditional love.
I thank You Father for the gift of Your Holy Spirit to keep my hand to the plow (Luke 9:62) so I will continue following Jesus and will run to You, not from You when I sin. (1 John 1:9)
I thank You Father God for being loving, faithful, trustworthy, Holy, just, forgiving, righteous, and wonderful! Happy Father's Day, Father God, Amen!
Brother Ted, our Heavenly Father means more to me than many Christians. My father was called to the Lord 25 years ago. So I am fatherless for many years. Because I came from a large and poor family, my father had never spoken to me except for once.
Now I have the best father of them all, our Heavenly Father is also my earthly Father. Thanks God for our Heavenly Father whom I love with all my heart.
Thanks for stirring up this love for Him again. I also miss my own father now.
