God the Father

August 23, 2016

 

“God the Father illumines our hearts to know Christ, so"that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh” (2 Cor 4:11), and His grace"spread through the many [and] cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God” (vs. 15). The light of God shines through one human being and then spreads to another, and another,"through the many.” (Dynamis 9/12/2015)

 

"He [Christ] does not praise the foresight of the worldly, savvy individual, but rather that of one who seeks life from our Father in heaven.” (Dynamis 6/28/2014)

 

"Our value does not come from what we have done. Rather it comes from the Father’s Love. That is where all our value comes from.” (Anthony De Mello)

 

“Family or clan (Gr. patria) is a group descended from one ancestor. God the Father (Gr. pater, v. 14), is the ultimate source of every living being. As there is only one uncreated Father, so the whole of creation is called to form one family under the fatherhood of God…The family of God includes all who have believed in him in the past, all who believe in the present, and all who will believe in the future. We are all a family because we have the same Father.”  (Orthodox Study Bible, Ephesians 3:15, Life Application Study Bible, Ephesians 3:14-15)

 

"God is relational in Himself; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Distinct persons yet one God. In an admittedly inadequate but perhaps still helpful analogy, God is"family” within Himself. Since, as the book of Genesis says, we are made in God’s image and likeness, we too are made for union and communion, for relationship wherein persons become one yet always remain distinct individual persons.” (Father Thomas Loya)
