The John Arnott conference last week spent a lot of time on the Fatherhood of God, something I believe cognitively rather more than emotionally. Yet, I know that it has an absolutely transformative effect on individuals who understand and believe it.
They asked us to imagine a really beautiful baby in the arms of a doting Father. That is how God sees you, they said.
They also read out this rather cheesy, but somewhat sweet piece of writing,
“If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. He sends you flowers every spring, and a sunrise every morning. He could live anywhere in the universe, and he chose your heart.”
