Sunday Words of Encouragement June 15, 2014 -- Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there! We have been thinking about, and missing, my father - Love you Dad.

Pastor’s message this morning was, of course, about fathers, particularly about our Heavenly Father. The message started in Luke 15 - the story of the Prodigal Son. Instead of focusing on the son, Pastor looked at the father and used him as an example of our Heavenly Father.
Just as the prodigal son’s father, our Heavenly Father gives, receives, restores and renews.
He gives love, salvation, mercy, healing and grace
He receives us into His household - His kingdom - as adopted children.
He restores us through forgiveness and redemption.
He renews us with healing and mercy by the Power of His Grace.

There is no perfect father on earth. There is none like Him. But Godly men are to reflect the Father, not just serve Him.

Thinking of Heavenly Father made me think of this:
Our Father Who Art in Heaven.

Psalm 103:13-14 NIV
13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.

I thank you, my Father Creator, for all the things you are to me: creator, provider, healer, banner, defender, deliverer, comforter, strength, peace, and above all, love. Help me to reflect Your nature through my own life.
