A Father’s Cry

“Suddenly a man from the multitude cried out, saying, ‘Teacher, I implore You, look at my son, for he is my only child’.” Luke 9:38

I hear The Father in this father’s cry:
“look at my son” . . .”Hear Him” (Luke 9:35)
“for he is my only child” . . .”This is my Beloved Son.” (Luke 9:35)

Oh Lord, thank You for relating to us through a Father/Son/Child relationship. Though we be frail, human and sinful, surely this must bring us to our knees as we look upon our own children and hold them close. And here’s a simple poem . . .

More Children

Jesus, My Begotten Son
Holy, pure, divine,
Oh, how I love You
I’m so proud You are Mine.

Though I gave You up to suffer
for their sins and pain,
the cross was not the end and
Your sacrifice was not in vain.

Now You reign with Me forever
as The Way, The Truth, The Life
bringing Me beloved sons and daughters
in whom I take delight.
