Father and Son

Father's Day

In the Scriptures the name and person of God are inseparably related. This is in keeping with the biblical conception of what a name signifies. On the prophetical books God is referred to as father by Job. When he asked, “Has the rain a father?” (38:28) The reference is to God as the maker, source and controller of rain. Isaiah uses the term Father to refer to God as the one who has made, sourced, formed, kept and directed Israel. (63:16-64:8) Malachi in 1:6 and 2:10 speaks of God as the parent who deserves honor from his children and as the origin and ruler of all people. But the dearest of all references to God as Father are the words of the song, “Give thanks to our Father.” “Our  Father” God as Father – The one who is the maker and maintainer; the giver of life; the one who keeps us day by day and provides our daily bread and sustenance. “Our Father” Who never slumbers nor sleeps, hears our cries and pities our groans, lifts us, covers us, goes before us. “Our Father” Who loves us for evermore and because of Him we are the Family of God. In this month of June as we celebrate Father’s Day- “Give thanks to our Father.” Happy Father's Day!
