Fathers Hearts Part 1
Part 1 The Godly relationship of Father and Son
Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day
of the Lord. And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to
their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Fatherhood is a sacred relationship which started in heaven long before the earth was made. The
intimate relationship between God the Father and God the Son was in place before creation and it will
last for eternity. By His sacrificial death on the cross Jesus became the way to the Fathers heart. John
14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth of life. No one comes to the Father except through
me." Jesus' ultimate revelation in the New Testament is to reveal God as our Father.
Through the fact that God is revealed as our Father we are given identity, self-worth and security. If we
realize that God is our Father we know who we belong to and that we are loved, cared for and protected
by our Heavenly Father.
In a way every earthly father represents God. To be a good father is a man's highest achievement. To
succeed in other capacities in life, but to fail as a father, makes you a failure in God's eyes. Fatherhood is
a sacred mantle He has placed on the shoulders of every earthly father.
