“And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Gal 4:6

Paul makes it clear that the Spirit of God that is in our hearts cries out Abba Father! Of all the names of God found in the scriptures, Jesus uses just one, Father and He wants us to do the same. When the disciples asked Him to teach them to pray he told them to address the Almighty God, creator of the universe as “Our Father”.

This has everything to do with relationship, Abba is a term of warm affection and shows that we can draw near to our loving heavenly Father, while religious spirits seek to place barriers between us and Dad.

What a beautiful exchange, only once did Jesus refer to His Father as “God” and was separated from Him, that when He was on the cross as the sin offering for the world, so that we through eternity we can call our dad, DAD and live close to Him!

Enjoy Him and Embrace Him today!
