Things I Wish My Father Knew #14 Indeed, A Costly Commitment

When the bills started coming in,
you probably realized
that having a family
was going to be
a costly commitments.

Those financial obligations
are only the beginning
of a father’s investment
in the life
of his beloved child.

It seems like a lot to ask
of a father,
doesn’t it?

Yet, a loving father
willingly pays the price.

The Heavenly Father
also counted the cost
of providing believers
with membership
in His family.

He willingly paid the price –
the death of His
only begotten Son.

It seems like a lot to ask
of a Heavenly Father,
doesn’t it?

But, our loving Father
willingly paid the price!

Because of His great love for us,
God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ
even when we were dead
in transgressions –
it is by grace
you have been saved.”
(Ephesians 2:4-5)

What, then, shall we say
in response to this?
If God is for us,
who can be against us?
He who did not spare
His own Son,
but gave Him up for us all –
how will He not also,
along with Him,
graciously give us
all things?
(Romans 8:31-32)
