God is a Loving Father! On Father’s Day, many of us look back to our childhood with fond memories. It thrills us when we think about all the things we did with our fathers and the sacrifices they made for us. However, I realize that some people didn’t have a loving, nurturing father, and others never knew their earthly fathers.
“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.” —Ephesians 3:14–15
Spiritually speaking, there are only two families on the earth: the family of God and the family of Satan. Every person, regardless of heritage or background, belongs to one of those two families. Which family do you belong to? Who is your father—God or Satan?
In today’s uncertain world, many of us are under a lot of pressure. And the way we react to that pressure determines whether we will succeed or fail. What do you do when you’re under pressure? Do you simply fold up? The moment you experience a little adversity, do you come apart at the seams?
Have you ever been asked, “Do you know so-and-so?” If you know that individual, you might automatically reply yes. But do you really know that person? If someone asked me if I knew my congressional representative, I would say yes. I’ve been introduced to him and we’ve spoken. And I’m sure if we met on the street, he would acknowledge me.
