Fr. Howard Thompson
People often wonder how the God of the Old Testament is portrayed as such a vengeful and vindictive deity, while the New Testament gives an image of a loving and merciful Person. One reason could be, is that we needed Jesus to reveal who really is our God.
Since Jesus is in the Father and the Father is in Him, then the words and works of Jesus give the true identity of a Father who does everything to save us (Jn. 14:6-14). May our lives of faith and hope reveal the beautiful truth that we are children of our loving Father.
Lord Jesus, to know You is to know our Father. Through You, the Father’s only Son, we have been adopted and are now His children. May we live as one family of God. Amen.
