Our Father, Our Glory

Today, enjoy a guest post from Todd Parsons, one of the great blessings in the Body of Christ.

As a man that is older than what a child is considered in our minds to be, it is often not easy to see my self as a child. The Lord Jesus said, for us to see the kingdom of heaven, though, we need to become as a child. To have child like faith... I see children and I know I marvel at their trusting inocence... Mattew 6, we see the Lord teaching the disciples how to pray, "Our Father who is in heaven". He also continues and says for us to take no thought... for our Father in heaven knows what we have need of... He also teaches us there what to focus on and seek... In another place the Lord says to Martha, who is so concerned about seemingly needful things, "one thing is needful and Mary has chosen it, it shall not be taken from her"... Proverbs17:6b says,"and the glory of children are their fathers". Do I include myself to be one of these children still and do I look to the Lord in heaven as my Father? For He... is... my glory...

Our Convention is as always, a great spiritual time, If you can make it, it's at 6025 Moravia Park Drive, Baltimore, MD 21206. There's a fee for the sessions, but fellowship is free. And there's lots of good international food.

We’re continuing in prayer for Dana and her family, Scott. And we’re still praying for Russ, Columbia, Jimmy and Betty. Curtis, Peggy, Joyce, and Libby. And their families. And, of course, our International Convention.
