A fathers perspective of the Father

Thinking this morning about 1 John, he writes to children, young men, and fathers. Each is in a different place in their relationship with God.

I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning (1 John 2.13 NIV)

These last weeks as I have thought about John Stott and his 90th birthday, as well as my own years advancing and the years of so many I know, I have also noticed that increasingly it is the Father and the comfort he gives us through our life that dominates that thinking.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.  (Psalms 107:1 NIV)

The older I get the more simple I see it all, and when it comes down to it that verse says it all. Thank you Father.

  1. Terry-in this day and age of confused perceptions, and after a weekend of in-your-face parades,it is refreshing to see an accurate loving depiction of the Real Father who wants the whole world to experience His real love. John 15

    • Thanks Dawn, good to hear from you!

  2. Good Morning, World…..that includes you, too, Terry! Your writing is always excellent…but it is inspiring me A LOT in recent weeks. Thank you! I’m needing the insight and perspective you bring about God our Father, who loves us in a way and to a depth that is nothing short of incredible. I’m working on finding His Grace and applying it to the “getting older” issues just beginnning to seed themselves in my silly head and causing a bit of fear to sprout…not fear of the “…might be’s…”, but over the “…what were’s…”. Your perspectives are helping me to find my feet firmly planted at the Cross where I can give my fear to Christ and simply “…be…”.

    Keep up this meaningful ministry!
