In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God (John 16:26-27).
Turning the hearts of the children to the Father begins with the revelation and experience of the Father’s burning passion for messed-up human beings. The average Christian sees a perverted image of the Father. They base their relationship with Him on a perception of Him being an arbitrary, untrustworthy, aloof despot, demanding perfection before He can or will interact with us. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Being male and female, both sexes reflect aspects of the glory of the Father. There is a tender, compassionate heart at the center of the Father’s existence that Paul describes as the kind of love and care a mother would show for her children.
