Higher Things

as a Father loves his Son...

This morning we meditated on the love that the Father has for the Son.
Emphasis added by me.

John 1:1-3
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being."

Isaiah 42:1, 6-8
"Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights...
"I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness,
I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,
To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
And those who dwell in darkness from the prison..."

Matthew 3:17
and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."

John 17:23
"...so that the world may know that You [the Father] ...loved them, even as You have loved Me."
