It is time for the church to experience the joy that comes from celebrating with the Father. Come to Papa will help to present a true picture of Who God, the Father, really is. When we truly know Him, then we will live according to our divine destiny in Him; His passionate pursuit and our passionate response.
A book's cover picture and title can make the book appealing or it can turn you off. For example, the title to the "Purpose Driven Life" really turned me off. My life had been driven by the enemy for way to long. After having begun to be led by the gentle Holy Spirit, I wanted nothing to do with a book that discussed being driven, even if it was motivated by a noble purpose.
The title and picture on the cover of "Come to Papa" both made me want to read the book. The picture shows a smiling little girl resting her head on her daddy's shoulder. They have their arms around each other.
The picture on the back cover also ministered to me. It showed a dejected youngster setting in front of a graffiti stained wall. Even if we are materially wealthy, our lives are mirrored by one those two pictures.
In "Come to Papa," Gary Wiens answers the question,"What is the process of filling ourselves with Him, so that our lives shine forth with the glory of the Lord revealed in our faces?"
As Gary writes, "The pathways of history are strewn with the catastrophic results of people looking for nurture in the wrong places, from the wrong sources. We foolishly heed the voice of the evil one who calls us away from the truth of God's provision to things that seem more accessible."
We can be addicted to so many unsatisfying counterfeits. We continually need to go back for another, often bigger fix. Work, volunteering, emotional and or legalistic religion, spending, food, drugs, catholic, sex, gambling, etc. can never satisfy our God given longings for intimate relationship.Read more ›
