Our concepts of God greatly influence our trust in Him. Some people think of God as cold and distant. They are reluctant to trust Him. Others believe He is harsh and waiting to find fault. They find it difficult to develop a close relationship with Him. But how did Jesus think of His Father?
Jesus had such a special relationship with the Father and wants us to have one too. In His model prayer Jesus instructs us to address the Almighty God as “Our Father.” God is a perfect Father who provides love, care, guidance and correction for His children. As we learn these truths, we can better trust Him.
And so just as Jesus models the perfect son by trusting, obeying and resembling His Father, so we can live like Jesus and share a close relationship with God and other believers too. “Holy Father, keep them in Thy name, the name which Thou has given Me, that they may be one, even as We are” (John 17:11).
A strategic basic discipleship series designed to help Christians grow not only in their relationship with God but also with other people. Each section uses a familiar relationship to bring out basic but very practical Biblical teaching.
We highly recommend getting the BFF Discipleship #1 Digital Library which not only includes the Relationship Discipleship book, but slides, summaries, user guide, teacher's reference, etc. This D#1 Library also contains all our other Christian training resources for new believers.
These Christian media-enriched resources can also be purchased in the BFF Resource Center.
