OPEN HEAVEN

15 For ye have not received the spirit
of bondage again to fear; but ye have
received the Spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness
with our spirit, that we are the children
of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of
God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Bible in one year: Judges 3-4, 1st Timothy 5

Message
There are many names used to describe God in the Holy Scriptures.
While all His names
are important in many ways, the name “Abba” is one of the most significant names of God in understanding how He relates with
mankind. The word Abba is an Aramaic word that means “Daddy” in common parlance. It is a loving name that young children use to address their father. This name shows the intimate relationship that exists between
father and child, and it conveys the absolute trust children have in their fathers.

It is important to recognise that although all those who believe in the Almighty can call Him God, not all of them can call Him Abba. Who then can refer to the Almighty as Abba?

Only those who have the boldness to call Him “Daddy”. These are people who believe in
Jesus, the Son of the Living God, and in the work of atonement He has accomplished for
all mankind (John 1:12-13) . Galatians 4:6 says,

“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

Furthermore, only those who honour God as a child honours his or her daddy can call the
Almighty Abba. Malachi 1:6a says,

“A son honoureth his father, and a
servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour?”

Your attitude towards God as a Father will determine whether you can call Him Abba, because Abba is an appellation that confirms your intimate relationship with the Almighty. You may want to ask: How can I honour God
as Abba? You honour Him by keeping His
commandments.

Some so-called children of God erroneously believe that grace means
lawlessness. They couldn’t be further from the truth (Romans 6:1-2) ! There are many
blessings we receive when we are true children of the Great Abba. In Genesis 17:1 , Abba Father declared Himself as the Almighty God. Because He is almighty, He grants His children their requests and daily loads them with blessings ( Psalm 3:4, Psalm 68:19 ).

Beloved, do you belong to this loving Daddy? I congratulate you if your attitude towards Him is that of total disregard for His person or
blatant disobedience to His commandments,
then you need to change your ways today.

You stand to lose a whole lot if you don’t have God as your Father.

Prayer point –
Abba, Father, transform my attitude towards
You and draw me close to You in Jesus’ Name.

SING HYMN 15 – NEARER MY GOD
TO THEE
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’ en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee.

Though, like a wanderer
The sun gone down,
Darkness comes over me,
My rest a stone;
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee.

There let me see the sight,
An open heaven;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy given;
Angles to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer, my God, to Thee
Nearer to Thee

Then, with my walking thoughts
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise,
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee
