"Your heavenly Father."
God's people are doubly his children, they are his offspring by creation,
and they are his sons by adoption in Christ.
Hence they are privileged to call him,
"Our Father which art in heaven."
Father! Oh, what precious word is that.
Here is authority: "If I be a Father, where is mine honour?"
If ye be sons, where is your obedience?
Here is affection mingled with authority;
an authority which does not provoke rebellion;
an obedience demanded which is most cheerfully rendered--which would not be withheld even if it might.
The obedience which God's children yield to him must be loving obedience.
Do not go about the service of God as slaves to their taskmaster's toil,
but run in the way of his commands because it is your Father's way.
Yield your bodies as instruments of righteousness,
because righteousness is your Father's will,
and his will should be the will of his child.
Father!--Here is a kingly attribute so sweetly veiled in love,
that the King's crown is forgotten in the King's face,
and his sceptre becomes, not a rod of iron,
but a silver sceptre of mercy--the sceptre indeed seems to be forgotten in the tender hand of him who wields it.
Father!--Here is honour and love.
How great is a Father's love to his children!
That which friendship cannot do, and mere benevolence will not attempt,
a father's heart and hand must do for his sons.
They are his offspring, he must bless them;
they are his children,
he must show himself strong in their defence.
If an earthly father watches over his children with unceasing love and care,
how much more does our heavenly Father?
Abba, Father! He who can say this,
hath uttered better music than cherubim or seraphim can reach.
There is heaven in the depth of that word--Father!
There is all I can ask; all my necessities can demand;
all my wishes can desire.
I have all in all to all eternity when I can say, "Father."
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask.

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
