“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13
When the disciples asked Jesus how they should pray, His answer was an amplification of their relationship to God as their Father. He emphasized God’s holiness and our dependence upon Him. Additionally, Jesus stressed the importance of forgiveness, both vertically and horizontally.
Perhaps the above photo seems unusual in this context. In a very small way, it is an example of our relationship to God. The setting is in the Oval Office of the White House, where many of our nation’s most important decisions are made. The man in the picture held what is considered the most powerful office in our country, if not the world. As he looked upon his two children, his love and joy is obvious. I think that might illustrate Paul’s thinking as he wrote the following to Christians in Galatia. His use of the term, “Abba, Father” expands our bond with God. The term, “Abba” denotes a more childlike relationship similar to our term “daddy” or “papa” and is a beautiful description of our coming to God as little children.
Thank you for helping us declare this truth on Tabernacle Time with your prayers and gifts. “But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” Galatians 4:4-7
