crossIs. 9:6-7 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. And the government will rest on his shoulders. These will be his royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Jesus is our Everlasting Father. He has always been, is now, and forever shall be. He is one with God, our Heavenly Father. He is one with God in life. He is one with God in His eternal plan of redemption. He is one with God in judgment of sin. There is nothing that Jesus and God are not the same on. He is God.

He is always dependable to be who He is. He is the same eternally. Before anything other than God existed, He was. It is impossible for Jesus to fail to be who He is. It is impossible for Him to not do what He promises to do. He forgives all who come to Him humbly and sincerely for the forgiveness of their sins. Everyone. He forgives all the sins we give to Him. He wraps all His children up in His righteousness so that they are acceptable to God. He keeps all of His children securely in His righteousness who stay yielded and obedient to Him. He is the Alpha and Omega of our salvation. Praise His holy name!

He is unfailing and forever faithful, watching over us to protect us and help us. Because He is God we never have to worry about His dependability. We never have to worry about His availability. We never have to worry about His love for us or His desires for us. His heart for us is always for our good. No matter what we go through in life, Jesus wants us to learn and grow through it for our good. His desire for us is always for our holiness of heart, for without holiness no one shall see God. What He does within us to change us is always for our good. Praise His holy name!

Jesus is our Everlasting Father. Some day we shall see Him on His throne in heaven and bow before Him in worship if we remain faithful to Him. Some day He will place a crown of righteousness on our heads and declare us good and faithful servants who are worthy to be with Him for all of eternity. Some day we will behold Him in all His splendor and glory and join in the heavenly choir singing forth His praises. Praise His holy name! Jesus, our Everlasting Father!

About the Author:

Jim Hughes

Spending his formative years in Ft. Wayne, IN, Jim followed the love of his life to southeast Iowa where they married and have spent the majority of their lives. Jim has pastored several churches throughout his life and has worked many years in local factories to help support his family. The father of two married adult children and one son still at home, Jim is a first-time author.

C Through Marriage came into being through many years of pastoral and life experiences. The book first took on a life of its own over 20 years ago when I sought to address the much publicized moral failures of prominent leaders in the church. In the chapter on Chasity, I include the guideliness that I developed then to protect one’s self from such failures.

I am a firm believer in order to make sense out of life you have to use much common sense. We need to get back to the basics of what has worked for many, many generations. If is isn’t broke, why try to fix it? I strive to return to the basics of what really works in all my writings.
