Somebody once said that fathers are like parking spaces – all the good ones are already taken.
Father’s Day for you may be a sweet celebration, or perhaps it is one that is tinged with bitterness. But you know what? This is what our God says about you: “I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)”
Jesus was very emphatic when he said in John's gospel 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” We tend to focus on the Lord Jesus as our Saviour, our Intercessor, our Mediator, and so on. All these terms are wonderful and true, but they stop short of God's purpose. His purpose is not that we should come just to Jesus the Son, but also that, through the Son, we should come to the Father. Jesus is the way but the Father is our destination.
