Cherishing our relationship to God

When we pray even the first two words of the Lord's Prayer, we acknowledge a significant fact. We acknowledge that God is "our Father." By this acknowledgment, we honor a relationship that is an abiding source of blessing. And as we cherish this relationship by understanding and living in accord with it, we realize that blessing.

Christ Jesus, who gave us the Lord's Prayer, not only believed, he understood, that God was his Father and ours. He demonstrated this understanding in healing works, as well as in his dear-bought resurrection and ascension. He said, "I and my Father are one." John 10:30. But he also said, "My Father is greater than I." John 14:28.
