Jesus is declared the embodiment of the word of God. The truth that was unknown came into bodily form to proclaim the eternal message that God is love the Father of all. The desire of God’s own heart for his children brought him down into flesh with the fullness of grace and truth. Out of the abundance of his love, God turned himself down into the image of men so that by faith men may be raised up into the fullness of the image of God.
God, as loving father, is seeking out people from all nations in all generations. He spoke out in Isaiah 65:2, “All day long I held out my hands to an obstinate generation whose hearts are never in me.” Even though the children have backslidden, they still remain at the center of God’s love and compassion and He desires deeply that they may return to his sheepfold. Father can’t let his children be away from his divine love for long for He knows the weakness of their human nature.
Our heavenly Father is calling out day and night for he knows that the more his children are away from his divine presence the more enemy will use them by filling their minds with deceptive thoughts. Father stands out looking for his children to come back to him the way prodigal son’s father was waiting for the moment when the son comes home so that the father may shower his love and compassion on him and bless him with his chosen blessings.
Once the estranged children come home, father not only welcomes them but blesses them with a portion of his inheritance, which has come down to us as the seal of the Holy Spirit. The Blessed Holy Spirit dwells among God’s children to fill them with Godly strength and enable them to walk on the way of Grace and truth.
Father is still looking for his children with deep love, compassion and out-stretched hands. Have you seen those hands and heard the voice that cries out, “I have loved you with everlasting love .” Jer. 31:3 “Behold I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” Isaiah 49:16
