Seeing God through the Eyes of Jesus

Seeing God through the Eyes of Jesus
Jesus portrays God as a good shepherd, a good woman, and a good father in Luke Chapter 15.  He also teaches that repentance is based on our acceptance of the love God has for us.  The shepherd searched and found the lost sheep.  The woman, the owner of the lost coin, searched and found her lost coin.  The father of the Prodigal ran out and embraced and kissed him.
If we don’t see our heavenly Father in the light Jesus portrayed Him to be, we will act like the critical fault-finding brother who resists his father’s love, grace, and mercy–at the same time, being blind to the love his father has for him.
