Fatherly Purpose

God the Father has always loved His unique Son in the Spirit. And the Father has always wanted children who would share His Son’s love relationship with Him in the Spirit.  So when the time had fully come the Father sent His own Son into the world to accomplish this Fatherly purpose.

At his Baptism Jesus stepped forward as the Father’s servant-Son.  And the Father said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased” and then the Spirit came upon Jesus enabling him to serve his Father. Only as the Spirit enabled man could Jesus fulfil the Father’s purpose.  Only by serving His Father as the Spirit-anointed servant-son could he bring us into the communion of love enjoyed with His Father.   And that is just what he accomplished!

Now we share love relationship with the Father, through the Son and in the Spirit.  Now, by the Spirit, in union with the Son, we cry abba Father as we await our future inheritance as dearly loved children.  All this, according to the Fatherly purpose of God that will be fulfilled at the end of the age in God’s new world.  Then the home of God will be among us and we will find fullness of joy in him. For we shall share fully in the Son’s love relationship with the Father in the Spirit forever!
