People all over our country celebrated Father’s Day as we gave thanks for our earthly dads, grandfathers, and other men who are special to us. Every time we gather in the Lord’s house for worship, our time together can also be seen as a Father’s Day. As we are reminded in our Readings this weekend, God, our heavenly Father, has reconciled us to Himself through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. By our Father’s grace, we are made His “treasured possession.” As those who receive His Word and are filled with His Spirit, He forms us into “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” We approach Him directly and confidently as children do their loving Father. May your time in our Father’s house be blessed always!
