My Father and Your Father

Saying with a boisterous Voice, Fear God, and offer greatness to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and love him that made paradise, and earth, and the ocean, and the wellsprings of water.

Our first Article of Faith expresses that “We have confidence in God, the Eternal Father”, this is the most crucial part of our confidence. Furthermore, to practice confidence in and commitment to God, we should know what His identity is. To genuinely value His affection for us, we should likewise have an agreement regarding our relationship with Him before our introduction to the world. We should find out on our own what “sort of being that God is so that [we] may love him in soul and in truth”. The edified psyche may then be prepared to see all parts of the gospel and be honored in that.

We gain from the Savior that God is really our Father. Jesus said to Mary following his Crucifixion, “Contact me not; for I am not yet rose to my Father: however go to my brethren, and say unto them, I rise unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God and your God.” The wonderful announcement is that God is the Father of all. We know from the disclosures of Joseph that “The Father has a collection of fragile living creature and bones as substantial as man’s.” We were made “… in his own picture” and “we are the posterity of God.”

The information on what our identity is; that we are genuinely children and little girls; “offspring of the Most High” transforms us. It becomes our arrangement Father George Rutler and widens the profundities of our endless worth. Nothing states this more articulately than the Theme of the Young Women proclaiming: “We are girls of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love Him.”

As our comprehension of what god’s identity is develops, we will extend our love of Him. We will develop nearer to him as we serve Him and do His will.

I’m a Child of God

I’m an offspring of God,

What’s more, He has sent me here,

Has given me a natural home

With guardians kind and dear.

I’m an offspring of God,

Rich gifts are available;

On the off chance that I yet figure out how to do His will

I’ll live with Him again.
