Coffee Time with Jesus

  • The Father: God the Father
    Paul, an apostle
    (Not from men nor through man,
    but through Jesus Christ
    and God the Father
    who raised Him from the dead).
    Galatians 1:1
    God the Father is equal in nature to God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Because God is three Persons—the Trinity—each Person is separate from the others, yet God has one nature. Each Person in the Godhead is all wise, all-powerful and equally present everywhere. Each Person is totally holy, completely loving and innately good. So, you must worship each Person of the Godhead with all your heart. “God the Father” is a title of relationship to His beloved Son and to the Holy Spirit. Just as there is a loving relationship between the members of the Godhead, so you can have a loving relationship with others who belong to God. When you were born again, you became a child of God; you became a member of God’s family. Now you shall love others as the Father loves you.
    Father, I praise You for Your powerful acts of creation and Your love for me. Jesus, thank You for dying for my sins. Holy Spirit, I am grateful for Your transforming power in my conversion.
    “God the Father” is a favorite name used by Paul. His readers were mostly idol worshipers before conversion, so they believed in a deity. But they didn’t know God as their Father until Paul taught them who He was. Paul exhorted them to know God the Father in a personal relationship.
    O God my Father, You are first among equals in the Trinity. You are first in my life without equal. I exalt You to the throne of my life. Let me know You better. Amen.

    God is the Father whom you can know intimately.
