#5534 – Knowing Father

Good morning people who come through Jesus to the Father in heaven.

John 1:18 NIV No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

Jesus came to restore mankind to relationship with the Father – with His Father and with our Father.

It is absolutely true that Jesus is the only way, the only truth, and the only life. Anything else is false.

But Jesus’ desire is for us to come to Him, and then to come through Him and with Him to the Father. The destination that Jesus paved the way for was to know the Father.

So, what is the Father like?

He’s just like Jesus. More accurately, Jesus is just like His Father.

Hebrews 1:3 NIV The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

John 14:9 NIV Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

My prayer for you today is that your relationship with your Father in heaven is strengthened and deepened. I pray this in Jesus’ name and by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
