IF YOU CAN CALL GOD YOUR FATHER – YOU ARE MOST BLESSED AMONG MEN!
“Doubtless Thou art our Father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: Thou, O LORD, art our Father, our Redeemer; Thy name is from everlasting!” [Isaiah 63:16]
“He shall cry unto Me, Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my Salvation.” [Psalm 89:26]
“For I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn.” [Jer 31:9]
“If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but HE for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness.” [Heb 12:7-10]
“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
