Knowing #likeJesus

How well do we know our Father?

Jesus’ parables in Luke 15 about the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and the Lost Son; his parables in Luke 16 about the Unjust Steward, the Rich Man and Lazarus; his encounter in Luke 17 with 10 Lepers and his parables of the Unjust Judge, the Pharisee and the Publican…

What do all of these reveal about the heart of our Father?

Our Father is…
…a God who pursues us
…a God who rejoices over us
…a God who receives us, sacrifices for us, embraces us
…a God who honors and rewards our faithfulness
…a God who desires an undivided heart (loyalty) from us
…a God who gives no special treatment… we’re all on equal ground- rich and poor, educated and uneducated- at the Cross
…a God who notices our gratitude
…a God who hears and graciously answers our cries and prayers
…a God who exalts us when we’re humble

Jesus, thank you for wanting us to see the Father and revealing His character through your teaching in the parables.

Father, thank you for being great, gracious, loving, righteous and just.   I want to know you more!
