The so-called “believers” in Christ had this assumption in John 8.
And certainly, today, the religious idea that we are all brothers and have the same Father generates warm, cozy feelings in the community.
But then Jesus says some very tough words, shattering the masquerade of brotherhood.
Yesterday, we looked at John 8:41-47. It’s awful. At one time as a young church goer, I did have another spiritual father. I matched the evidences.
Thank God, in His undeserving grace, I have been set free from the old lying’, stinkin’ father. All I can think of today is how can I demonstrate my love to the Lord Jesus Christ and my new Father. My soul hangs on His words.
