The message of Christ is radical, surprising, and yet simple. “In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?” The Bible tells us that God is a Father who waits, who longs to gather His children together and take them into His arms. We, who were once alienated and His enemies have been offered a place in the family of God through the greater gift of adoption. This God is Father, whose name is hallowed and whose kingdom comes, whom we know through the Son and by the Spirit, whom we run toward as children.
