The love of the Heavenly Father is not a mere feeling. We know that He loves us because the Bible tells us so. Jesus is the Beloved Son of God, and we are in the Beloved.
We are accepted, highly favoured and clothed with special honour by the Father because of Jesus.
Jesus did not come to introduce a religion but a relationship with the Heavenly Father.
He came to declare, manifest or make known the Father to us.
