When Jesus came, He surprised everyone by the name He used for God. Abba. It was the equivalent of a boy or girl calling their Father, Daddy. Papa. What’s fascinating is that Jesus – the Son of God – asked us to call Him Father – Abba – too. And we have all the benefits of that. He cares for us – like good Dad’s care for their children. He knows us – and loves us too – and Abba, Papa, Daddy – is at the core of this relationship. Best of all, He’s the loving Dad of those who stray away and finally figure out that it’s time to come home.
