It is also true that there are those that had a father figure around, but there was not a good relationship with their father. Many of these people are not in prison, but suffer today from the hurt their father caused them as a child. One such lady I knew was sexually abused by her father as a child. Late in her father’s life he came to her and asked forgiveness. This was a very hard thing for her to do and she did forgive him, but she could not welcome him into her life. He accepted the Lord and was baptized in the same church that his daughter was a member. He could never sit with his daughter and her family in church. It was also very difficult for the church family to minister to him as it was a very awkward situation. I do have to give him credit for his courage because he kept coming to church even though he knew he would never be fully welcome nor fit in.
Jesus, as a man, suffered the fear and feelings that one must feel when one knows he is about to be executed. Jesus is a man that expressed maximum courage to accomplish what His Daddy told Him that He must do to save His people.
What Would Jesus Do?
Jesus always went to His Daddy about everything as an example for us for every situation in life. Jesus is saying to us, "Listen to My Words and DO what I tell you to do as I only DO what My Daddy told Me to DO.
