This past Sunday, Pastor Josh continued The Temple Prøject summer series explaining the Father's love for us.
THE FATHER'S LOVE // JOSH NEUROTH
The central message of Jesus is to restore our relationship with the Father. Why? Because the Father wants to give us a full life and move heaven through us into this world. He doesn't want to see us doing all we can to show our identity and value or to prove ourselves to the world. Striving on our own wears us out because we weren't meant to battle without the Father's help. The Father loves us so much He has "carved" out a place for His sons and daughters in His Kingdom.
My personal takeaway is to stop trying so hard, take a deep breath of heaven's air, and accept the Father's love. This means persevering through the process of God working inside me to ready me for the place of His calling.
