Don’t you love it when the Holy Spirit gives you those “aha” moments in Scripture! I had one recently when I took the time to look up all the references in the New Testament where Jesus speaks about his Father.
One of the insights early in Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5 and 6 is that he addresses three of life’s primary questions and connects them to our Father.
- Who are we? We ARE “children of our Father in Heaven.” Matthew 5:45
- What is our purpose in life? Our PURPOSE is to help others “glorify the Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
- What is our ultimate goal? Our GOAL is to “be perfect” like our Father in heaven. Matthew 5:48
Jesus can answer all the deep nagging questions about our existence, purpose, and goals in life.
