Genesis 18:20-32; Psalms 138:1-3,6-8; Colossians 2:12-14; Luke 11:1-13
A father, son and daughter were having dinner at home. The mother was away visiting a sick relative. Little Annie, age eleven, was allowed to sit in her mother’s place. Annie’s slightly older brother resented the arrangement. “So you’re the mother tonight,” he taunted. “All right, how much is nine times fourteen?” Without a moment’s hesitation, Annie replied, “Ask your father!”
In John’s Gospel there us a rather long exchange between Jesus and the Pharisees in which one word is repeated over and over. Throughout his Gospel, the Apostle John quotes Jesus as repeating the word, “Father,” in the same paragraph, in the same stanza, in the same sentence, in the same phrase. To give a few examples …
“Whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise, for the Father loves the Son” (5:19).
“The Father loves the Son and everything the Father does He shows Him” (5:20).
“The Father who has life sent Me and I have life because of the Father” (6:57).
