OUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN

Our Father Who Is In Heaven
By Pastor Mark Taylor
June 15, 2014

Jesus said His purpose in coming to Earth was to "glorify His Father".  To show people on Earth what God was all about (John 12:28). To show all of us how much He loves us.  This Sunday is "Father's Day" in the U.S.  This day is set aside to thank and honor our earthly fathers  partly responsible for giving us life and providing for our needs as children..  But greater than that, I would like this sermon to be centered around thanking and honoring our Heavenly Father for giving us "real life, and life more abundantly". (John 10:10)

All any Pastor can do  is to show you Who He - your Heavenly Father is, and what He can do for you.  You must decide when you leave here today if you are going to take your relationship with Him seriously, or if you are going to "play church".  There is great value in getting close to your Heavenly Father, because He has so much to give you now and in the life to come.  He can provide your material needs and physically healing, but He wants to give you so much more - His greatest gift and that is His love.

This weekend I am getting to spend Father's Day with my three children.  All I really want from them is their love.  When I am in their presence I feel loved and in turn they feel my love for them.  Our Heavenly Father longs for those days and moments you spend with Him.  

What does your Heavenly Father desire from you on this Father's Day?

First of all He desires that we should love Him and have a loving heart toward others. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ said:   "The first of all the commandments is:  "You shall love The Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.  And the second is "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  There is none other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31).

 The second thing He desires of you is to "love one another".  "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another.  as I have loved you, the same way you love one another."  By this  all people will know you are my disciples if you have love one for another.  (John 13:34-35).

Some of Our Earthly Fathers are not with us today and we miss the relationship we had with them.  Some of you may have not had a outwardly affectionate Father or had a good relationship with him.    Some of you may have grown up in a home without your natural Father.  All of these circumstances may have kept you from understanding what a good father-child relationship should be.  Our Heavenly Father wants you to establish that relationship with Him in which you can trust Him and feel loved by Him.

Seeking and finding this relationship with your Heavenly Father will help the men to become better Fathers, women to become better mothers, and. Children and youth to become happy with who God made them to be.

This relationship begins with accepting The Lord Jesus as your personal Savior.  You will never understand the Father's love, until you have His Holy Spirit in you.  He is the Gift of God's presence through His Son to you.  When you have One of them, you have all of Them. Without that personal relationship with The Lord Jesus you will miss the Fatherly relationship with God.  That relationship is available to everyone:   "whosoever calls on the Name of The Lord, shall be saved."   


My prayer for you is that today you will have a Happy Father’s Day with your Heavenly Father.
