Our Father Which Art in Heaven--Linden Malki
And then think about the magnitude of difference between our earthly fathers and our Creator. We read of Jesus' relationship with his Father, and are overwhelmed at his invitation to us to call God our Father. And even though we can sense the presence of God here, through His Spirit, He is not limited to our space. We hear talk of the God within us, and the God in Nature, but this image of God isn't anywhere nearly big enough. When Jesus said "Our Father, which art in Heaven", He is talking of a God who is greater than all of time and space, but still has the time to relate to each of us as the individual He created. He offers to enable us to become the person He created us to be if we are willing to follow His Son into His Presence.
