You Are Just Like Your Father!

Ever heard those words? Unfortunately, we tend to hear them in family circles to point out a negative trait. Imagine though, hearing those words in the kingdom realm as a child of God pointing to positive Godly traits. What an honor it would be to hear that we are just like our heavenly Father.

Jesus was the only and perfect son of God and because of His finished work on the cross, it makes it possible for us to be like our Father. Jesus said in John 14:9 and 12 ....."He who has seen Me has seen the Father. Most assuredly, I say to you who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also, and greater works than these he will do because I go to My Father."

Jesus did the work for us. He overcame every obstacle and circumstance, took stripes for healing, covered sin with His blood, and destroyed the works of the devil. Our heavenly Father loves us just as He loves Jesus and wants a personal relationship with each of us. He sent the Holy Spirit to empower us to live that abundant life.

As we spend time in God's presence and His Word, the revelation of God's love and grace will produce change in our lives. God's love and compassion will begin to consume our lives and compel us to work the works of God in good character and with integrity. We will should be just like our Father.

Love and blessings,
