Hear from Pastor Louie
This past Sunday Pastor Louie encouraged us to help us reach incarcerated men and women with the promise of a perfect Father.
Passion City Church + God Behind Bars
There are 2.3 million men and women incarcerated in the United States. And, many of them grew up without the love of a father. Research shows that 85% of youth in prison had an absent father. In fact, fatherless children are more likely to become incarcerated as adults.Every human heart is wired to long for the blessing of a father. Yet, if you’ve never had that, or if the word “dad” or “father” ignites memories of distance, disappointment, and disillusionment, it creates a chasm between who you perceive God to be and who he truly is… a perfect father. As a House, we’re on a mission to bridge that gap and introduce incarcerated men and women across the country to their perfect Father.In partnership with God Behind Bars, Pastor Louie Giglio recently went into Everglades Correctional Facility near Miami, Florida carrying a simple message: no matter who you are, where you came from, or where you find yourself now, you can know that you are a deeply loved child of a perfect Father.Across the country, we have already seen hundreds of men and women transforming their lives and learning to walk in the fullness, authority, and intimacy as children of God. They’re discovering that they are chosen, and God has a blessing that will change their lives, that of their kids, and the lives of generations to come.Give
What does Seeing God as a Perfect Father mean?
A. W. Tozer wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” How we view God informs everything about who we are and who we’re becoming.
This updated edition of the national bestseller Not Forsaken challenges our perception of who God is and points us to a heavenly Father who is not absent or ambivalent, but is available and affectionate, ready to shower us with his approval and love.
No matter what has happened on this side of eternity between you and your earthly dad, Seeing God as a Perfect Father will help you:
- Embrace who God is and discover the truth and beauty of his nature
- Understand that God uniquely created you and loves you unconditionally
- Unlock the chains holding you captive and find freedom in who you are in Christ
- Walk in the fullness, authority, and intimacy as a child of God
When we take hold of the truth that our God has spanned heaven and earth to reach us, we will no longer be defined by our past but by the love of a perfect Father.
Experience God in a life-changing way: as a perfect Father who wants you to live under the waterfall of His blessing.
