For many years now, I have been studying my Bible and learning about my Father and while He is sooo far beyond all of us in wisdom, I may never fully know all about God in my lifetime on earth and in my limited understanding!!! WOW!!! Father is a smart ONE!!!
One thing I have learned over the years is that our Father is One who is worthy of great respect or honor and deserving of high regard as someone of superior standing. It is because of that, that I desire to listen to Him and talk to Him with a heart of love and admiration. His Word tells us that when God created us, we were each made in His image. As believers, His Spirit lives in each of us. As a result, there is God and His greatness in each of us!!! Now how awesome is that!!!
As I reflect upon this today, it is heavy on my heart, the importance of treating each other as such and as we would treat our Father – with great respect or honor. To be respected, we must be respectable and part of being respectable is treating our Father, others and ourselves with respect. It is a circle of love with Father’s perfect love for us each in the middle!!! Oh I love that thought of the warmth of our Father’s Holy Spirit fires working in each one of us to show His love to each of us just as if we are showing love and respect to our Father!!! 🙂 He has created each one of us in His image!!! To do so is a social practice that the Apostle Peter understood and wrote about. The two greatest commandments that sum up the whole Bible is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind and the second is to love our neighbor as ourselves. Going round and round in relationships is a good thing when it is a circle of love and respect. Oh that thought just makes me smile!!!
Swirling that Fatherly love and respect throughout our days I’m thinking is a good thing!!! He has respected us enough to give His whole life to seeing that we are loved, safe, well cared for, helped divinely and victorious in going for divine life – bringing heaven to earth!!! WOOOHOOO!!! GOOO FATHER!!! THANK YOU FOR LOVING US THAT WAY!!! In following His example of love, I’m twirling out into the world to do the same as Father has done for us with you all! Much sisterly love to you ~ sooo proud of you for going into life with Jesus empowering YOU!!! It looks divine on YOU TWO!!! 🙂 Such a powerful song here of how Father shows love and respect for people!!!
