Visiting with Your Father
We who are born into God’s family are meant to reflect His values and ideals. His desire is that we sit with Him and learn of His character, His ways and His plans so that we are similar to Him. The more intimate a relationship we have with the Father, the more we become like Him. And, when we lose touch with the Father through our own willful ways, we should miss His fellowship. When someone loves their Heavenly Father, they will make the disciplined decision to learn everything they can about Him and through this intimate relationship they will find they are becoming more and more like Him.
2 Corinthians 3:18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
Galatians 4:6 And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.
