In this message, Pastor John Lindell shares an uplifting sermon on “Remembering the Father’s Goodness.” Join us as we study scripture from Psalm 103 and hear powerful teaching on God’s love for His children. Our prayer is that this message gives you a greater understanding of God’s goodness and great love for you.
Remembering the Father’s Goodness
But just remember he is our most loving Father. Every other
discovery of God, without this, will but make the soul fly from him;
but if the heart be once much taken up with this, the eminency of
the Father’s love, it cannot choose but be overpowered, conquered,
and endeared unto him. This, if any thing, will work upon us to
make our abode with him. If the love the of father will not make a
child delight in him, what will? Put then, this to the venture:
exercise your thoughts upon this very thing, the eternal, free, and
fruitful love of the Father, and see if your heart be not wrought
upon to delight in him.”
~ John Owen, Communion With God
