We’re going to make our proclamation, which is taken from the first epistle of John chapter 3 verses 1, 2 and 3:
1 John 3:1-3: “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God, and we are! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” Amen.
So tonight I want to speak to you about knowing God as your Father. We’ve all got the language, starting with The Lord’s Prayer, and it’s all genuine, but do we have the experience or is it just religious words?
In John 14 verse 6, a very familiar passage to evangelicals and others like that, Jesus says these words: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
