FATHERHOOD IN GOD’S IMAGE, GOD IS THE PROTOTYPE

SleepingChild2Today we come back to our series on FATHERHOOD IN GOD’S IMAGE

Psalm 11:3 states: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

Fatherhood, without doubt, is one of the most important foundations upon which we build a healthy society!

Fatherhood is one of the greatest roles a man can have the privilege to live and fulfill.

Without the function of true fatherhood, society quickly fails. Strong fathers are necessary to make strong families and strong families make a strong nation.

Christian men are greatly privileged to know God as their Father. Jesus said in John 14:6: “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” To know God as our Father is indeed a priceless treasure to experience. In the Gospel of John alone the name of the Father is mentioned approximately 123 times. Jesus spoke of God as Father more than any writer in the Bible.

In the Lord’s prayer, Jesus taught us to pray: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name” (Matthew 6:9). To me, this surely means that the name of God as Father is a hallowed name, a name to be reverenced, to make holy and sacred.

God is the prototype of all true fatherhood. There is a strong sense of love, intimacy, care, protection, and mercy that God graciously provides for us through our relationship with Him as our personal father. God is the greatest Father of all. He is perfect fatherhood.

We are so amazingly and unbelievably privileged to always address Him each time we pray as “Our Father” or even better, “My Father which art in heaven.”

Be encouraged.
