SHOW US THE FATHER
 
 
 

Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’”
 
John 14:8–9, ESV

 

One day Philip asked Jesus a question. He watched the way that Jesus lived His life and yearned to be like Him. Jesus was the first to teach that God was a Father. He was the first to fully live a life fathered by God. The way He lived was so compelling that Phillip said, "Show me who the Father is and that will be enough." Philip asked the same question that we are all born with: Who is God the Father?
 
Could it be that every Christmas, Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, models to us an image of what we want a father to be? Is a father someone magical that delivers presents to us if we are good enough? Fortunately, God doesn't require us to be perfect all year for Him to bless us with gifts. Jesus showed us what His generous Father looked like. He never excluded anyone from the fullness of His gifts. Jesus showed us that, "if you have seen the way that I live, and the words that I have spoken, you have seen My Father." 
 
What a gift for us to be able to look at Jesus' life and see the kind of blessings the Father has for us. Jesus was the perfect picture of who the Father is. If you look to Jesus, you will discover the Father you've always wanted. 
 

Father, I pray right now that You would show me more of who You are. Jesus, would You reveal Yourself to me and heal the longing that the whole creation suffered the day that Adam lost access to the Father? Jesus, You came to connect us with Him for the rest of eternity. Help me to surrender my efforts at being enough. Help me to receive your love and blessings. Thank You, Father, for sending Your Son so that I could know You. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Pastor Ed Tandy McGlasson has brought hope and healing to parents and children suffering from divorce, mixed family difficulties, parent/children relationship problems, single parent challenges and the loneliness of orphans and widows.
 
Through 20 years of healing ministry to families Pastor Ed has discovered a powerful solution to a common cause of family problems.  He has discovered a solution to the fatherless wound.  Most family problems can be traced back generations to wounds caused by different types of fatherlessness.  Pastor Ed's definition of fatherlessness includes fathers and mothers that were emotionally or physically abusive, emotionally or physically absent, or lacked the ability to love their children because they were not loved and blessed by their fathers.

Today there is hope for families found in Pastor Ed’s latest healing program, The Blessing of the Father For Families.  Please log on to www.blessingofthefather.com to learn more about how to heal your family.
