Daddy found his artistic abilities in his retirement.
But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God. Galations 4:4-7
Isn’t it marvelous that God has given us mothers and fathers? They nurture, cuddle, and carry us when we are babies. They teach, provide, and protect us when we are children and teens. They advise, babysit, and befriend us when we are adults.
Fathers are unique. When all is right, Christian fathers give us a glimpse of our Father in heaven. They provide for their families. They protect their families. They lead their families. They receive honor.
I called my father “Daddy.” Jesus called His Father, “Daddy – Abba.”
Paul writes to the Galations that “God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”
We can call the God of the universe “Abba.”
My prayer for you
Abba, thank You for Your lovingkindness, Your provision, Your protection, Your leading. May Your love penetrate fathers today and work in families today. We honor You. We thank You, Abba, Father.
Have you called Almighty God, Daddy? Did that change your perspective of God?
