Paul and Peter Did Not Know Us

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 62-64 today.
Isaiah spoke to God with full confidence of a relationship with Him. The prophet put it like this,
Doubtless You are our Father,
Though Abraham was ignorant of us,
And Israel does not acknowledge us.
You, O LORD, are our Father;
Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name. (Isaiah 63:16)
Abraham did not know Isaiah and his family and friends. Israel the nation may not have wanted to acknowledge the prophet. However, one thing Isaiah did know, which brought him comfort, was that God was his Father.
We could say that Paul and Peter did not know us and the church may even wish we were not around, but if God is our Father that is what matters. Do you know God as your Father?
