Thought of the Day September 13, 2018 The Father's love

By 9:43 AM

Jesus came to reveal the true picture of His Father, who is our Father.  Jesus was a reflection and an instrument of the Father’s love.
“I do what my Father shows me.  To see me is to see the Father. The Father and I are one; If you know me you would know the Father. And he promised to send the Spirit, whom the Father poured out upon us out of his great love for us. Jesus told us that the Spirit will teach us and remind us all that he, Jesus, taught us. The Spirit, who is love--the bond of the Father and the Son’s mutual love--will enable us to come to know the Father’s love revealed in and through Jesus: to know this love not only intellectually in our head, but emotionally in our heart and through our experience.

God the Father loves his Son. The Son receives the love in thanksgiving. In receiving the Father’s love thus the Son acknowledges the Father’s love and validates it. Knowing that the Son receives his love is sufficient for the Father who delights in loving his Son. The Father doesn’t look for love in return. However, the Son loves the Father and therefore responds to the Father in love. (To be continued)
