Relating to God as “Father” can be difficult, especially for those who’ve had tough relationships with their human fathers. But even for those who have great human fathers, it can still be a real challenge to come to know God as Father. He’s so perfect and righteous, we may feel unworthy to come near. He’s so powerful and awesome, we may feel intimidated rather than close.
In this download, you’ll explore how the Bible portrays God the Father, you’ll confront the difficulties you may have in relating to God in this way, and you’ll consider how growing in intimacy with God the Father can revolutionize your spiritual life.
