The Father’s Love

In English some words have several meanings. For example, if I say, “I can run to the end of the room,” the word “run” means to go very fast. But if I say, “My car has run out of gas,” that means that the gas tank is empty.
The word “love” has many meanings, too. Verse 12 of our Bible Reading says, “But some people did accept him. They believed in him, and he gave them the right to become children of God.” When we become a Christian, we become God’s child. In this relationship, God loves us like a father loves his children. This is a very special kind of love.
Some earthly fathers do not show love to their children. But God is different. He blesses His children every day. The best way that He blesses His children is by offering them forgiveness and eternal life through His Son, Jesus.
Thank God today that you can be His child and receive His blessings!
