Fatherhood & Sonship

“And as I read the Gospel of John once more, I found it full of the Father’s love for His Son and the Son’s submission to His Father.

It was everywhere.

I began to realize how helpful it is as a father to meditate on the relationship between the Father and the Son, and I became convinced that one of the most helpful things for fathers to see and fall in love with is the beauty and glory of the Father and the Son, together. Here is the essence of Fatherhood, and every interaction between the Father and the Son in Scripture is like peeling back the veil and peering into high Heaven …

The Gospels don’t simply record the Son’s loving obedience to His Father; they also record the Father’s tender love for His obedient Son.

Thus, on the Mount of Transfiguration, Mark records for us: ‘Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, ‘This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!”(Mk. 9:7).

This is the Father from whom all fatherhood gets its name.

This is the Son from whom all sonship gets its name.”
