God the Father delights in giving good gifts

Our Father in heaven delights in giving good gifts to those who persist in prayer. The greatest gift of all is the Holy Spirit.

 


 

Sirach 1:1. All wisdom comes from the Lord, And is with him forever.

Matthew 7:11. If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Luke 11:13. If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?

James 1:5. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

James 1:17. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, nor turning shadow.

I was given a great gift. It is to be passionate about Jesus Christ and the Bible and the spiritual life. I am a Christian believer. I believe in Jesus Christ. I’m in love with Jesus!

I believe the Bible. I love the Bible. For decades, I’ve been reading it cover-to-cover, again and again and again. I’ve memorized a whole lot of Bible verses. Most of all, I want the Bible to help us fall more deeply in love with God the Father, with Jesus Christ, with other people, and with ourselves.

And I’ve been reading the great writings from the entire Christian heritage for decades.

At Explore the Faith, I share what I have discovered.
