Scripture Verse of The Week

daddy

Galatians 4 verse 6: “And because you are sons {daughters}, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba Father’.”

From the Message Bible: Galatians 4 verse 6:”You can tell for sure you are now fully adopted as His Children because God sent the Spirit of His Son into our lives crying out, ‘Papa! Father’.”

Like a child who is orphaned, find themselves suddenly as an adopted son or daughter of a king. Through Salvation there is something in our hearts reflexively wants to call God ‘Father’.

But God really wants to be called more than that by us. Father is a great term, but can appear a little distant. He wants us to call Him ‘Abba Father’ {Daddy or Papa} a more intimate term.

God heart overflows with tender love for His children. God wants us to let His Spirit teach us how to call Him {Daddy or Papa}

God love for us is pure, and we bring Him joy, He sees our needs and He wants to take care of us. He has plans for us all: Jeremiah 29 verse 11.

A relationship with Our Lord and Our Friend, is not just a formal acquaintance. it should be an intimate relationship, for after all Acts 17 verse 28: tells us:

“For in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets said. ‘For we are also His offspring’.”

Living in Him and His Spirit living in us, a relationship where we learn to call Him. Abba Father, Daddy, Papa.

The deep we allow ourselves to learn more about Him, the easier it will be to call Him, {daddy or Papa}

God Bless.
