Connect with the Father

19 June 2022
‘The Lord’s love never ends.’

Today is Father’s Day, a chance for us to celebrate and say thank you to our dads and the father figures in our lives. But it can be a time of sadness or resentment if we haven’t had a good experience of a father or our relationship has broken down. But however we feel about our earthly fathers, we always have a heavenly Father who we can rely on. Take a minute to check on your relationship with Him. Is it strong and constant? Or do you need to rebuild you relationship and reconnect with Him?

Even if we’ve neglected or rejected Him, God’s ready to welcome us back with His arms wide open. Just like the prodigal son’s father in Luke 15, God will celebrate the moment we come back. He loves us more than we could deserve or imagine. The Bible tells us: ‘The Lord’s love never ends; his mercies never stop. They are new every morning; Lord, you loyalty is great’ (Lamentations 3:22-23 NCV). ‘God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life’ (John 3:16 ESV). ‘God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)’ (Ephesians 2:4-5 NLT).

God’s love for us never stops or weakens. Whatever your relationship with God is like at the moment, take the opportunity today to thank Him for His amazing love. Reconnect with Him, and be assured that He’s delighted to have you as His child.

 

What Now?

If you can, do something nice for your dad today. And spend some time connecting, or reconnecting, with your heavenly Father, too.
