What Does Father’s Day Mean To You?
Just like Mothering Sunday, Father’s Day means different things to different people depending on what type of parent you’ve had.
In this passage we see that Jesus explains that he is the way to the Father – like Father, like Son.
But what type of Father is God?
Some people have a very Victorian idea of what God is like – cold, distant, reprimanding.
Others see God as loving, compassionate, available and engaged.
Sometimes fathers can be disappointing:
But our Heavenly Father is:
Joyful, and welcoming (he loves you with a joyful exuberance),
He gives extravagant gifts to his children (he blesses you day in day out),
He invites us into the family business (you have a role to play in the Father’s Kingdom).
