To all the father’s out there, Happy Father’s Day. I hope the Lord blesses your time being celebrated. But I also hope you take the time to celebrate.
The Lord has been impressing on me all week, leading up to this morning, just how blessed I am to have the heavenly Father that I do. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around John 1 all week–that through the finished work of Jesus, I have the right to be called a child of God. The right. Not a privilege, which it is. Not a favor, which does no justice. But a right.
I am a child of God. He saw my desperate need, traversed the insurmountable distance, and completed all the legal work on my behalf so that I can now proclaim the irrevocable right of adoption and be called a child of God. More so, He hasn’t been an absent Father. He did the legal work, and then took me into His household, care and riches.
Happy Father’s Day, guys. Be celebrated, but please don’t let the day pass without celebrating your heavenly Father.
