But there is a God who has chosen to take the position of Father. God has chosen to be the head of his household. And as a father, God will always go ahead of us and will lay down his life for your protection.
God is a protector... our protector. He is the very one keeping us out of harm's way. God is our shield. Because he is our father he wants to keep us safe, so nothing we will face in life will ever be enough to break God.
As a society of believers, we put so much emphasis and weight on the loving nature of God. I'm not saying that this is wrong to do. In fact, it is essential to recognize how much God loves us because that very love is what wipes away our sins. It is that perfect example of love that compelled our God to humble himself into the form of his creation. He came to us in the most vulnerable form of human kind, a baby. And that love is what had him die a death that wasn't fitting to his honor.
