Father = steadfast love

What was He thinking?  When Jesus called God “Father” and taught us to do the same, what did the word mean to Him?  What emotional context did the Lord intend for our prayers?   One clue may be the way he painted the picture of the Father in the story we call “the prodigal son”.  (Luke 15)  Father, for Jesus, is a person of steadfast love.  He does not change.  In the face of his son’s disrespect and public failure, His love stays constant!  He does not reject his son when he stumbles home.  He welcomes him.  Do you have such a Father?  Jesus’ answer is YES! and part of His intention is that you trust your Father to welcome you when you go to Him this morning.  Rejoice, dear friend.  Enjoy!  Your sins have not changed His love for you.  He is your Father.
