In this sermon, Zach Daniel teaches that Jesus, our Great Physician, heals our understanding of God the Father, revealing Him as present, attentive and loving.

  • Jesus reveals the Father as present, attentive, and loving
  • The Father speaks identity, affection and affirmation over His children
  • We are defined by God’s love, not our sin or struggles
