We are learning about the different aspects of the fatherhood of God.
If God is the father what are the things you are getting from him?
1) Your Name
11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.
When Jesus came into the world he was carrying his father’s name.
When Jesus prayed he always said “protect them by the power of your name”
That means the Father’s name is very powerful !
Last week we were talking about the new name that Jesus revealed of the Father to his disciples.
When babies are born, they get their father’s name attached to them.
The Biblical Times, they used to call a person by his father’s name.
As long as one lives he carries his father’s name.
So first, we get our Father’s name! There is protection in the name of our father.
2) Our Identity
When we have a father we have a personal identity.
In other words,
what gives one person his identity is his father.
He gets the genealogy from the father.
30 I and the Father are one.”
That’s the relationship between a father and son.
Jesus was never identified with his mother, he was always identified with his father( heavenly father)
3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
So Jesus was the exact representation of the Father.
So here,the son is representing his father,
And that’s how he gets his identity backup up from his Father.
3) Purpose of Life
34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
Jesus considered the word given by his father as his food.
We all love food ,we eat at different times of the day.
In the same way we must also enjoy the work given by the Father.
True purpose of life doesn’t come spontaneously to you but is given by the Father.
Each and every person receives an individual purpose.
So we have to realise, recognise and live for that purpose.
4) Life Purpose
10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
This was Jesus’ life message.
What was coming in Jesus’ mouth actually coming from the Father.
Each and every person has a life message and we have to receive that message from the author of life, the Father.
Jesus realised it and worked for it.
5) Your Life Mission
Many children, especially sons, receive the father’s businesses.
Jesus is continuing what God wants him to do. We must do exactly the same.
36 “I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish—the very works that I am doing—testify that the Father has sent me. Through your work you can glorify your Father.
We receive the father’s mission as our mission in life.
6) Your Inspiration
People will discourage you when you do something.
There are so many critics around us and would never want us to do good.
But if you have a father he will encourage you.
The greatest inspiration will come from your Father.
When the father encourages the child, the child will cherish it always.
17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son,whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
That was the Father’s voice, the voice of inspiration, the voice of approval.
7) Blessings & Inheritance
1 The Lord says to my lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”
2 The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion,saying,
“Rule in the midst of your enemies!”
When we become the children of God, we inherit the blessings of the father.
We receive Inheritance of the Father.
And this is why we have a Father in Heaven!!
