More On The Orphan Heart – Sonship (And Daughtership :-)

Hi All,

If you have been following along on my Orphan Heart notes, here is the 3rd installment – Sonship (and Daughtership) 🙂

I encourage you to get your Bible out and take a look at these passages. I think you’ll be blessed – I was!
A. Some Good Earthly Fathers:
1. Like father, like son – King Asa (2 Chron 14:2) and his son Jehoshaphat – 2 Chron 20:32

2. Taught to live life skillfully – Esther and Mordecai –
Esther 2:7, Esther 2:10, Esther 2:15, Esther 2:20

3. Jacob with Joseph –
Genesis 46:29 (a joyful reunion after years of pain and bewilderment)

B. What our Heavenly Father is like:

1. Prodigal Son and his father –
Luke 15: 17 – 22 – a wonderful picture of the grace of God to you and me

2. Come in close –
We have not just been called into His gates, but we have been called into His courts (Psalm 100:4)

3. He will not forget us –
Isaiah 49: 14 – 16 – We are inscribed on the palms of His hands.

4. Let there be no question in our minds about whether or not we can talk to our Father at any time. –
Hebrews 10: 19 – 23

We can enter His presence boldly, We have access to the very holy of holies, He is faithful.

5. We can sit and sup with him and talk with him – Rev 3:20

6. My Father and I will come and make our home with him –                         John 14:23

7. What do I say to Him?
How about thank you?
How about praise you?
How about our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. –
Matt 6:9
