O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! (Psalm 34:8 NASB)
Last week I started a discussion on choosing life. We have a choice and whilst love draws us in one direction we are completely free to decide our own response. Yet, the deeper we go and the more we journey with Father the less it seems like a decision, rather it feels like the obvious thing to do. Our heart longs for home, there is something inside of us that can't help but lean towards home.
When we've seen and experienced the goodness of the Lord there is no other place we want to be than in his presence. Yes, we all make mistakes but those mistakes never disqualify us. Yes, we all need a second (and maybe a third) chance but that's ok; there's always a deeper homecoming for us to experience.
So let's choose life and begin to walk as Jesus walked.
Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; remain in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. (John 15:9-11 NASB)
A Father to YOU is a signpost to the heart of the Perfect Father. When we became Christians we were given the right to become children of God (John 1:12). Sadly, many of us fail to take up that right and instead continue to live as slaves or orphans. But our true destiny is being sons and daughters who have a permanent place in the Father's family.
