Back in 1966 Time Magazine’s cover said Is God Dead? It stirred a lot of debate back then. I would imagine that today many could still have that debate. There will be those who will always be philosophical about such a question. Regardless of the debate we can fill in the blank with a definitive NO! “We are living testimonies as Christians that He indeed is alive and a life-giver.
Let’s fill in just a few blanks about God.
- God is LOVE. “But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” I John 4:8.
- God is GOOD. “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithfulness endures forever.”
- God is FAITHFUL. “But you, O Lord , are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
- God is UNCHANGING. “I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.”
The list can go on endlessly. Isn’t it wonderful that the God we serve is ALIVE? He never fails us, He is always GOOD and He is a good, good Father.
On this Father’s Day remember to reflect on the goodness of God. No matter what your relationship was or is with your earthly father your heavenly Father’s love and devotion surpasses any father we could ever have. Be thankful for the memories if they were good and release the memories that perhaps were not so good. You have a heavenly Father who loves you beyond what you can imagine. You can cry out to ABBA Father and He hears you. Today be thankful that God is not dead and He is your DADDY!
