God is willing to show compassion, and to rescue people from ruin.
“And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” – 2 Corinthians 6:18
God has promised, that he will be to his people their protector, counsellor, guide, and friend, and that his people, shall be his sons and his daughters. Is there a greater honour or happiness than this?
A father is the protector, counselor, and guide of his children. He instructs them, provides for them, and counsels them in time of perplexity. No relation is more tender than this.
The most humble in position, the most poor and ignorant on earth, the most despised among people … may reflect that they are the children of the ever-living God, and have the Maker of the heavens and the earth as their Father and their eternal Friend.
