Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! Being a Dad is a great honor and gift from the Lord! God bless you all in your journey of fatherhood!
The above photo is what I woke up to this morning. My wife made her special gluten free cinnamon doughnuts for me. They are delicious and the cinnamon is great for regulating blood sugar. They are also made without soy, dairy, or eggs. Thank you honey for becoming an amazing gluten free chef! My daughter made me the card in the middle and my son made me the bag with the mountain scene drawing on it. Awesome job kids, I love it! They also packed the bag with a bunch of doughnuts wrapped in a cloth. I feel very loved and my heart is full!
I love my kids with all of my heart, but as much as I love them, I am an imperfect father. The greatest gift I could ever give to my kids is to help them develop a strong relationship with their Heavenly Father. God loves us perfectly and He loved us so much that He died for us, so we could be with Him in Heaven forever! God’s love for my kids is perfect and He knows them and what they need completely. We can trust in God’s love for us and His love is never failing! When you believe in Jesus, you are adopted by God and you become one of His children! You become a son or daughter of the Lord and you become an heir to Heaven! That is the incredible love God the Father has for us!
“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.”
No matter who you are, you have a Father in Heaven who loves you and wants to be with you forever! God is a perfect Father and His love can heal your heart and soul! Our earthly fathers are not perfect and I know many people had bad fathers or grew up without a father. I want to encourage you that God is not that way! God will never leave you nor forsake you! Once you belong to Jesus, you are God’s child forever! His love for you never ends and nothing can snatch you out of His hand!
“…God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
Jesus speaking in John 10:28-30
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus speaking in John 3:16
If you don’t know Jesus, come to Him today and become a child of God! Receive forgiveness of all of your sins and the salvation of your soul! Your Father in Heaven who created you and loves you more than you can imagine wants to give you eternal life! Accept God’s great love for you and receive the inheritance of Heaven!
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Our Heavenly Father is the perfect representation of how a father should love. I want to love my kids like God loves me. He is kind, compassionate, patient, and forgiving. God’s love sets the bar for what defines a good father. It is through His love alone that I can be the loving father He has made me by the power of the Holy Spirit! I want my kids to be totally covered in God’s love every day! It is His love that has set them free; it is His love that has set us all free!
To all the Dads out there, love your kids like God loves! Have a blessed Father’s Day!
Grace and peace to you all!
