All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. (Mt 11:27)
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. (Lk 10:22)
As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. (Joh 10:15)
Jesus has a distinctive and unmatched relationship with the Father. Since His relationship with the Father is personal and direct, ONLY Jesus can accurately disclose God the Father to us.
How has Jesus revealed the Father to us? Through His life and through His acts, He has displayed His Father’s character and heart for all to see and understand. Here are just a handful of gifts that the Father has given to believers:
- Love (Joh 3:16; 1 Joh 3:1)
- Freedom from Guilt (Rom 8:1)
- Health, healing (Ex 15:26; Isa 53:5; Mt 12:15;Lk 5:17)
- Daily benefits [blessings] (Ps 68:19)
- God hears and answers our prayers (1 Joh 5:14-15)
As we study the Word of God and think deeply about it, we gradually learn more and more about the character and nature of God. And the more we learn of Him, the more confident that we can be in the fact that He loves us; that He enjoys blessing us; and that He’s always with us. Have a wonderful day!
