Identifying Fatherhood in God
Discuss about the Father Heart of God.
The book is written by Floyd McClung and it has several dominant themes such as in this book “The Father Heart of God” the author has tried to identify the fatherhood in God. In this book, he wanted to show that the God is also as loving and caring as common father (Sites.google.com, 2016). The God is also affectionate to his children means us like any common father. The book has many different themes, and among the several themes the most important themes are extracted here, which provoke me more than any other themes (Beeley, 2007). The most significant themes which provoke me most are the father heart of God full with love and he provides us everything for full filling our emotional, mental, spiritual and physical needs. The God is father of all living creature and he has love for all his children. God has showed his love to the entire people of the world, the theme that god has fatherly love for all his children is touched me very much and I am entirely provoked by this specific theme of fatherly love of God to his children (Chau, 2007). Besides this, the theme that describe that the God has fatherly heart and he is like a friend and counselor to us and it is also touched me very much (Keller, 2008). Like any common father God easily befriend to his children and he help us when we need in our distress he made counseling for us. It is also provoke me very much as I think that the God will help me in the hard time and if I perform anything wrong, he will help me to rectify it because God is my father with an affectionate heart and God love me (McClung, 1985). Apart from this, one of the important themes of the book is that the God is corrector, with his compassionate heart as a father he has sympathy to us and the God make us correct if we did any wrong things so that he save his children from any misfortune(Human, 2005). It is also provoke me as I know that the God will save us from any misfortune as the God my father is compassionate with me. Besides this, one more theme from the book “The Father Heart of God” is touched me, that the God has fatherly heart of love so that he want to make our live more and more comfortable, all our misfortune and distress he stays by our side and help ,us and make our life more comfortable. Like any other common father the God wants to provide ultimate comfort to his children he wants that his children always stay happy. In this particular book these theme really touched my heart and I provoked by the fact the God is my father and he want to provide me with each and everything to make me comfortable and happy.
Themes of The Father Heart of God
The theme in “THE FATHER HEART OF GOD” focuses on the heart of god. God created us and gives us an opportunity to live on this earth. God is compassionate, gracious, caring, powerful, kind and merciful. The author has compared the characteristics of god with a Father who also gives love and care to his children (2016). God created us with the freedom to live and choose whether to response to his love. God is the provider and love to provide emotional, mental, spiritual and emotional needs. The book shows the heart of a Father and god and the author focuses on the reality of life. The right direction and instruction can be gained by an individual from his father as well as protection (Cooper, 2009). The depiction of real world is the main aim of the author that provides an understanding of significance of Father and god in the life. God believes that everyone should live in peace and be happy. God is the corrector who shows us the right path and no going to the wrong direction. A father also shows the right path and love on his children (Domeris, 2007). God forgives all the faults and then brings good things out of their weakness and failure. The thought of bringing good things will make them stronger and living a peaceful life. The god is gracious, kind hearted and merciful that makes an individual to be out of evil deeds (Wilson, n.d.). He is the one who cares of us and provides comforts at difficult times. The author has explained the role of God and its views and expression towards it (Miller, 2011). The heart of god and father provides us kindness, everlasting love and forgiveness. God is the defender, loves to protect his children and delivering good things to his children. He gives us the shelter and a joyful life to enjoy. God has all the power and bible teaches us about how god love us and one should develop respect for him (Porteous, 2011). God gives right justice to the people and ruling them to follow the right directions. The people living on this earth are facing difficulties as well as they are also choosing the wrong path. Therefore, God is the one who gives the justice by showing the right path to them.
The reflection of the book is determined for the better understanding of the insight meaning with the better creation of the nature of the father for having the golden heart. The reflection totally determines the effectiveness of the book "THE FATHER HEART OF GOD" where it determines the nature and the duties followed by the father for its children and the family. According to me the book provides the detailed review of the roles and the responsibilities carried out by a father in the place of the god. It is impossible for god to resolve different problems of the different people at the same time and therefore for this reason, god has created fathers for carrying out the part of the responsibility of the god. The nature determines the behaviour and the attitude which carries the golden heart for protecting the family from carrying out the evil deeds and henceforth the major role played is defending the family from each and every harsh situation.
Analysis of The Father Heart of God
The reflection of the book also helps in focusing on the struggles that are faced by a father with being one of the true ambassadors of the god. The book also provides the explanation of the types of the challenges that are faced during the provision of the poor testimony and also the specific actions for calling the father as the ambassador of the god. It also helps in represent the nature of the golden heart which can be called as the part presence of the god in the world. Thus the reflection helps in the provision of the heart loving for the father and hence the book represents the closeness to the proximity and thus the intimacy is created with the understanding of the solutions. Thus the reflections helps in the determination of the intimacies that are created for understanding the solutions and henceforth it helps in understanding the heart of the father. The reflection helps in the creation of the imagination for the creation of the response which are carried out by father and thus the phrase provides the perfect explanation of the father being the heart of god.
Henceforth the special level is created with the enhancement of the imagination and thus the creation of the understanding for the creation of the special level of the imagination with the proper enhancement of the solution for the ambassadors which helps me to create the ability for the differentiation of the god and the father. As per the book suggests that the spirit of love is created from the heart of the father and henceforth the holy work of consecration is used not to be glorified but need to be created with the perception of the transformation and hence the living life also encounters the sin which is both revealed and gloried. Thus the reflection provides the pure and the true presentation of the heart of the heart of the god. Henceforth the lives are transformed and glorified as the Holy Spirit and hence it also helps in encountering the sin deeds.
