March 15 : Passover

– God as Father

God first revealed Himself as “Father” through the Passover.

Exodus 4:22-23a

Then you shall say to Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord: “Israel is My son, My firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me.”

Many people reject the concept of God as father because our earthly fathers are so imperfect.  But God is perfect; He is a perfect father.  As we saw yesterday, He hears the cries of His children and comes to their rescue.

We also see in this verse God’s unique relationship with Israel – Israel is His firstborn son.  Even today the firstborn son is given a greater portion of authority, responsibility and blessing.


Safe in the “father’s” hands.
