As I listened to Sinclair Ferguson’s message, "Hallowed be Thy Name: The Holiness of the Father," I found the following statement to be a powerful illustration of the Father’s love for the Son. All of you who are married will understand this statement:
By far my most intimate relationship in all the world is with my wife. No man dare lock eyes with my wife and gaze into her eyes the way I am privileged to gaze into her eyes and say, "I love you with all of my being." And it’s like this, that the blessed Son is able to gaze into the eyes of the heavenly Father, and bear in His being–in the mystery of His eternal being–the intensity of the Father’s love for Him, the intensity of the Father’s desire to have fellowship with Him.
