The Words You Long to Hear from Your Father
Author: Rich Stevenson
Jesus spent more than thirty years in an alien culture, surrounded by harsh voices, isolated from affirming words. Did he sometimes wonder if he could make a difference, if he could finish the difficult work he'd come to do? Sometimes he felt so alone, but three timeswhen the pressure was heavyJesus received exactly what he needed to carry on: The audible words of his Father–an inspiring, loving, life-giving voice from Home. You are my child; I love you. You are mine; I have chosen you. I will glorify my name through you. These words, spoken out loud by God the Father to Christ the Son, infused his earthly mission with incalculable power, and the world was changed forever. These same words are also meant for every believer, every co-heir with Jesus today. Listen! They can change your life, too! In a world of alienation, aggression, and pain, A Voice from Home is a powerful and moving exploration of the message our Heavenly Father longs for each one of his children to hear and embrace: words of soul-affirming identity, of life-consuming purpose, of self-surrendering promise. Hear and be transformed by this remarkable message from the God of the universe, lovingly spoken to you today. From the Trade Paperback edition.
