One of the greatest truths of original Christianity and of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is that we are spirit sons and daughters of Heavenly Father. Paul writes in Hebrews 12:9 that God is the Father of spirits and in Acts 17:28, he states that "we are also his offspring." This connection between God and man helps us understand His love and also our divine potential, including the ability to be joint heirs with Christ (Romans 8). This Fathers Day, let's not forget why God is called our Father in Heaven. It's not just a pleasant metaphor. He is our Father.
