I've had the past three weekends off from preaching. Enjoyed the break, especially the opportunity to spend more time with Leah and Gabby.
This morning I'm studying for a new series this weekend exploring the picture of God as Father. A few weeks ago I started studying Jesus' interaction with the Father from his baptism to Gethsemane. From start to finish, his entire ministry flowed out of an intimate relationship with the God He called Abba.
I love these study days--the insights, the growing burden, the vision for impacted lives, the joy of God's Word which is always alive! And of course, this series gives me a great opportunity to reflect on this new season of my life. I've learned so much about God since becoming a father.
