The Love of the Father

1st John 3:1 The Love of the Father

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1st John 3:1 NIV

 

Not everyone´s dad would have done it. But one father started buying motorcycles and ATVs when his kids began showing an interest in them. They bought used ones at first and saved up till they could buy newer ones. Every spring break or a long weekend, they would try and get away. Dad would drive them down to ride in the desert or some sand dunes. They would camp wherever they could park and everyone loved those times. Soon, the children´s friends also started buying bikes. They would tag along. When they got big enough, sometimes there would be a whole little gathering out there in the desert. Those were special times for the dad, those kids, and all the friends! Do we know how our Father loves us?

How great is the love of God! He is the Almighty! He can do all things! Yet He has chosen to love us! It sounds crazy because we can be quite distracted children. We choose to chase after so many other things even though all He wants is for us to want to spend time with Him. He gives us lots of toys and blessings. Even though most of the time we just run off without thanking Him. But there are some who love being with Him. Some try to stay close to the Lord and really look for any opportunity to spend time with Him. We could be that kind of children! Could we make an effort to thank our Father for His kindness and shall we ask Him what exciting journey he would like to go on with us now?

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for the love You have given us! Move us to the point that we spend eternity seeking to be with You, we pray!

Amen
