SERMON: The Letter from God…


My Child, 

You may not know me, but I know everything about you (Psalms 139:1).

I know when you sit down and when you rise up (Psalms 139:2).

I am familiar with all your ways (Psalms 139:3)even the very hairs on your head are numbered (Matthew 10:29–31). 


You were made in my image (Genesis 1:27).

In me you live and move and have your being, for you are my offspring (Acts 17:28).

I knew you even before you were conceived (Jeremiah 1:4–5).

I chose you when I planned creation (Ephesians 1:11–12).

You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book (Psalms 139:15–16).

I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live (Acts 17:26).

You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14).

I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalms 139:13); and brought you forth on the day you were born (Psalms 71:6). 


I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know me (John 8:41–44).

I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love (1 John 4:16).

And it is my desire to lavish my love on you (1 John 3:1), simply because you are my child and I am your Father (1 John 3:1).

I offer you more than your earthly father ever could (Matthew 7:11), for I am the perfect Father (Matthew 5:48).

Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand (James 1:17), for I am your provider and I meet all your needs (Matthew 6:31–33).

My thoughts toward you are as countless as the sand on the seashore (Psalms 139:17–18), and I rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17).

I will never stop doing good to you (Jeremiah 32:40), for you are my treasured possession (Exodus 19:5). 


I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul (Jeremiah 34:21), and I want to show you great and marvelous things (Jeremiah 33:3).

If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me (Deuteronomy 4:29); delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4), for it is I who gave you those desires (Philippians 2:13). 


I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine (Ephesians 3:20), for I am your greatest encourager (2 Thess 2:16–17).

I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3–4).

When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you (Psalms 34:18); as a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Isaiah 40:11).

One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes, and I will take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth (Revelations 21:3–4). 


I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus (John 17:23).

In him, my love for you is revealed (John 17:26).

He is the exact representation of my being (Hebrews 1:3).

He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you (Romans 8:31), and to tell you that I am not counting your sins against you (2 Corinthians 5:18–19).

Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:18–19).

His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you (1 John 4:10): I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love (Romans 8:31–32). 



If you receive the gift of my son, Jesus, you receive me (1 John 2:23), and nothing will ever separate you from my love again (Romans 8:38–39).

Come home and I’ll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen (Luke 15:7).

I have always been Father and will always be Father (Ephesians 3:14–15).

My question is:

will you be my child (John 1:12–13)? I am waiting for you (Luke 15:11–32). 


Love, Your Dad 

(The Almighty God)
