God Is the Perfect Father

Humans are flawed, but God is not. Humans mess up, hurt us, or abandon us,
but God never will. Humans pretend to love, run out of love, and turn love
into hate, but God isn’t like that. You are precious to God. He is a
perfect Father. He loves you like no other. When humans disappoint or hurt
you, you can remember that there is someone who cares about you so much
more than they ever could. Even when you mess up, God still loves you. In
fact, God loves you so much that He gave a great sacrifice for you. He sent
His only Son, Jesus, into this broken world to suffer and die for you. And
Jesus rose again on the third day, giving you salvation, the greatest gift
you could ever receive: by putting your trust in Jesus, you can be
forgiven, become God’s child, and have the sure hope of living with Jesus
forever. So, remember that while humans are flawed and mess up all the
time, God never does and never will. God knows you. He created you. He
purposefully made you. God’s love for you is real, and it is never going to
disappear. Humans can do all kinds of things to hurt you, but God wants a
good life for you. He is always with you, and when you call to Him, He
hears you. God is the perfect Father, and He will never fail you. • Bethany
Acker • What does it mean that God is the perfect Father? • If you have
questions about what it means to become God’s child, who are trusted
Christians in your life you could talk to? (You can also find more
information on the “Know Jesus” page.) • If you want to dig deeper, read
John 1:12; 8:12; 10:10-11; Acts 2:21-24; and Romans 10:9-11. For God so
loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in
him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)
