Glimpses of My Father
God the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father. (Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; 1 Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6, 7; John 14:9).God showed His love by giving His Son (John 3:16). He did not lend Jesus nor send Him as a visitor; it was not a mere act of politeness. When He gave His Son, He indeed gave a part of Himself. God gave Jesus unconditionally, as a gift, so that through the life of the Son we were able to see the Father, and through the death of the Son we were enabled to live with the Father.
