Parenting, God Style
Jesus made a visionary statement to the disciples that, “if you have seen Me, you’ve seen the Father.” (John 14:9) To better understand our heavenly Father, we are hereby invited to study Jesus’ life.
Father or Motherhood may not readily come to mind when we first think of Jesus’ life, yet the examples are many.
Jesus sees a multitude and recognizes their need for a true shepherd. He teaches many things and has compassion for them as a loving mother would. (Mark 6:34)
He reveals our heavenly Father’s character through the prodigal son parable. A loving, seeking, longsuffering father rejoices that his wandering child has returned. (Luke 15:11)
And like a mother over-looking Jerusalem, Jesus lamented Israel’s refusal to shelter with Him, as a mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings. (Luke 13:34)
Many have a distorted view of our heavenly Father, thinking of Him as stern or vengeful, while they think of Jesus as kind and loving. Yet hear Jesus again telling us like Phillip, ”if you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen the Father.” They are alike in mind, character, and purpose.
Thank you for helping STR proclaim a clear, Biblical picture of our heavenly Father. Through your faithful prayers, encouragement, and financial gifts, God continues to sustain this ministry and bless every listener with the truth as it is in Jesus.
