Oh righteous Father

JESUS SPEAKING

                “O righteous Father!  The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent me.  And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved me may be in them, and I in them” (John 17: 25-26.)

INSPIRED THOUGHTS

                Here, Jesus is finishing his prayer for his disciples just before being crucified.  Jesus makes it known to us that most people don’t know God, that he does know God, and that all who believe in him will know that God too.  Jesus delivers a message from the God of all creation to the people on this earth.  The message he has given us is a message of love.  Jesus has shown us that God the Father loves us and He desires to have a relationship with us.

                Today there are so many religions, with so many different beliefs and ideas about who, or what God is.  Some religions have claimed God has asked them to kill, some claim God hasn’t asked them to do much of anything.  Jesus has shown us that the one true God has commanded us to love.  God did not set the universe in motion and then walk away, leaving us in confusion and uncertainty concerning the meaning of our existence.  God has always been reaching out to us, sending us messengers to speak on his behalf.  At last He sent us Jesus Christ.  If we want to have a relationship with a Heavenly Father, it begins with knowing his son.  May we all desire to enter into a loving relationship with God.

                “Lord Heavenly Father, we ask and pray that You would speak to our hearts concerning Your Son.  Help our hearts to be open to receiving Your love.  Testify to us of the truth of Your messenger, and give us Your Spirit, that we might be able to fellowship with You today.  We love You and praise You and thank You, and we ask all of these things in Jesus Christ’s name.  Amen.”  God bless all of you.
