Father loves you


Father loves you

Awake in the middle of the night, I prayed:

“How can I communicate to my boys’ class on the love of a father when I haven’t felt the love of my father.”

Then the verses came to mind:

As the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you. Remain in My love.
(John 15:9 HCSB)

The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. (John 3:35 NASB)

This is why the Father loves Me, because I am laying down My life so I may take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down on My own. I have the right to lay it down, and I have the right to take it up again. I have received this command from My Father.   (John 10:17-18 HCSB)

for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father. (John 16:27 NASB)

And, almost audibly, I heard:

“Gotcha!”
