Father and King

If God says his chosen ones are acceptable to him, can anyone bring charges against them? Or can anyone condemn them? No indeed! Christ died and was raised to life, and now he is at God's right side, speaking to him for us. Can anything separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble, suffering, and hard times, or hunger and nakedness, or danger and death? It is exactly as the Scriptures say, “For you we face death all day long. We are like sheep on their way to be butchered.” In everything we have won more than a victory because of Christ who loves us. I am sure that nothing can separate us from God's love—not life or death, not angels or spirits, not the present or the future, and not powers above or powers below. Nothing in all creation can separate us from God's love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Romans 8:33-39 - CEV

If you were the son or daughter of a king, would you be more impressed with the fact that your father is a king, or that he is your father? I think, quite obviously it is more important that your father is, in fact your father than that he is a king!
If you had to choose between the two, what would you decide? Would you choose to keep the king and lose your father, or keep your father and lose the king?
I would rather have a loving father than a loving king! A father who never receives the praise of the world, but loves his children is more important to them than all the kings on earth!
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, then you can know for certain that God is your Father! He is also the Almighty Creator of all there is, but like a mighty warrior General would pick up his baby and caress him in his powerful arms, God will tenderly care for you! Remember, the only way to become a child of God is to be “born again” into His family because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross!
Many children in today’s world are “Fatherless” because of so many terrible things that can happen. But no children of God are without their Father! You can also ask your Father to let you sit in His lap as He tells you the stories of Creation and the history of Time! You will be forever blessed!
“Lord Jesus, thank You for giving Your own blood so that I might be a child of the Father! May Your Glorious and Wonderful Name be praised now and forever, Amen!”
