Before we dive into anything having to do with our own identities, we have to establish an understanding about who God is. This three part series will give us a glimpse of who God is to us, how much he loves us and what he's willing to sacrifice to bring us back to where we should be. This will be the foundation upon which we build all of our other topics.
God the Father God perfectly loves us. His love is so far reaching and all encompassing he formed us out of the clay (Is. 64:8). He made something out of nothing. He knit us together in our mother's womb (Ps. 139:13). His word says we are 'fearfully and wonderfully made' (Ps.139:14). We are each painstakingly unique; even genetically identical twins are nuanced in their appearance and personalities. He loved us enough to only make one of us in all heaven and earth. The depth of God's love formed us knowing we would spit in His face; sin in all sorts of manners against him. God's love for us is perfect, unconditional, totally incomprehensible agape (which is Greek for absolutely unconditional love). God loved us enough to allow us to choose or reject him, to hurt or please him. His motives for creating us were absolutely void of ulterior motives. He simply wanted to manifest his love and he did it through creating us. This is God the Father.
