A Father's Letter of Love -- Compiled by Paul Ciniraj

My Child,

I know everything about you. I know when you sit down and when you rise up. I am familiar with all your ways (Ps 139:1-3). You were made in my image (Gen 1:27). In me you live and move and have your being; for you are my offspring (Acts 17:28). Even the very hairs on your head are numbered (Mt 10:30).

I knew you even before you were conceived (Jer 1:5). I chose you when I planned creation (Eph 1:11). I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live (Acts 17:26). I knit you together in your mother's womb. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book (Ps 139:13-16). And brought forth on the day you born (Ps 71:6).

I have been misrepresented by those who don't know me (Jn 8:41-44). I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love (1Jn 4:16). And it is my desire to lavish my love on you simply because you are my child and I am your father (1Jn 3:1). I offer you more than your earthly father ever could (Mt 7:11). For I am the perfect father (Mt 5:48). Every good gift that you receive comes from me (James 1:17). For I am your provider and I meet all your needs ((Mt 6:31-33). My plan for your future has always been filled with hope (Jer 29:1). Because I love you with an everlasting love (Jer 31:3). My thoughts towards you are countless as the sand on the seashore (Ps 139:17-18). And I rejoice with singing (Zeph 3:17).

I will never stop doing good to you (Jer 32:40). For you are my treasured possession (Ex 19:5). I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul (Jer 32:41). And I want to show you great and marvellous thing (Jer 33:3). If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me (Deut 4:29).

Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart (Ps 37:4). For it is I who gave you those desires (Phil 2:13). I am able to do more than you could possibly imagine (Phil 3:20). For I am your greatest encourager (2Thes 2:16-17).

I am the father who comforts you in all your troubles (2Cor 1:3-4). When you are broken hearted, I am close to you (Ps 34:18). As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Is 40:11). One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes and will take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth (Rev 21:3-4). I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus (Jn 17:23). For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed (Jn 17:26). He is the exact representation of my being (Heb 1:3). He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you (Ro 8:31). And to tell you that I am not counting your sins (2Cor 5:18-19).

Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled (2Cor 5:18-19). His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you (1Jn 4:10). I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love (Ro 8:31-32). If you receive the gift of my son Jesus, you receive me (1Jn 2:23). And nothing will ever seperate you from my love again (Ro 8:38-39). Come home and I'll show the biggest party heaven as ever seen (Lk 15:7). I have always been Father, and will always be Father (Eph 3:14-15).

My question is......Will you be my child (Jn 1:12-13). I am waiting for you (Lk 15:11-32).

YOUR PERFECT FATHER IN HEAVEN (Mt 5:48).
