Our Father

The Communion meal tells us who our Father is. He is the Lord God Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth. He has adopted us, making us joint heirs with His own Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior. Jesus is our elder brother but He is not hording the Father’s inheritance. All that belongs to Jesus belongs to us. He freely gives us all things. 

It is true that there are false sons within the pale of the Church but if we look to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith; if we confess that we need a Savior and look to Jesus to save us from our sins; if we believe the Word of the Father that all that come to Him will find relief for their heavy load of sin; then we have no doubt who our Father is. We are His and He is ours. We are pleased to be at His table and He is pleased to serve us here.

O ye heights of heaven adore Him,
Angel hosts, His praises sing;
Powers, dominions bow before Him,
And extol our God and King,
Let no tongue on Earth be silent,
Every voice in concert sing,
Evermore and evermore. Amen.
