John 1 says ..
9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. 10 The Word was in the world that was made through him. But the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to what was his own. But his own people did not accept him. 12 Some people did accept him. They believed in his name..
When we are in the “dark” .. nothing is more satisfying than “light” .. and according to scripture – God is “unnapproachable light” … 1 Timothy 6:16 says – God is the only one who can’t die. He lives in light that no one can get close to. No one has seen him. No one can see him.
We know that Jesus came to reveal the Father to us .. John 14:8-17 clearly says this .. .
We use many names for Jesus—the Christ, Teacher, Messiah, Prophet, and King, among other Names .. But one name stands out as a comprehensive description of the Lord’s purpose – the Lamb of God. His miracles and teachings were all remarkable, but even greater was His death on the cross… for through his death and resurrection of our Lord, .. and through our relationship with Him .. we can call God OUR FATHER ..
According to Romans 8:14-16 (NIRV) 14 Those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit that makes you a slave to fear once again. Instead you received the Holy Spirit, who makes you God’s child. By the Spirit’s power we call God “Abba.” Abba means Father. 16 The Spirit himself joins with our spirits. Together they give witness that we are God’s children.
