Good morning to you this fine autumnal weekend.
To have a personal relationship with the Father one has to have had a personal encounter with the Son resulting in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son who reconciles us to the Father.
This is what Paul says concerning the Son.
"The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—"
(Colossians 1:15-22 NIV)
As you ponder Paul's words, rest in your relationship with the Father.
