The Devotions

Who Is God?

2 Corinthians 6:18

KJV “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

ESV “and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.”

NIV “And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

God isn’t some imaginary being who is distant from us. He isn’t sitting on His thrown controlling us with His strong hand. God is our Father.  He wants nothing more than a deep relationship with us, one where we grow close to Him and follow Him. He nurtures us and protects us, and He provides the blueprint for us to have a life in eternity with Him.
