…and we cry “Abba, Father.” -
The word "Abba" is an Aramaic term meaning "Daddy." This scripture tells us our relationship with God, the Father, is intimate, close and caring. On earth, any man can be a father -
We are grateful for Christian fathers, men of God who stand tall for their values, and yet can also kneel to see the world through the eyes of a child. "It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow" is a quote by President Calvin Coolidge. He was acknowledging that men carry a heavy responsibility in the Christian world – that of living out the example of our Heavenly Father. There are many people today who cannot comprehend a loving, faithful God, because they felt unloved or abandoned by their earthly fathers.
By revealing an unfathomable God as His Father, Jesus set a high standard for all fathers that would follow. He clearly showed that a Father is both powerful and authoritative and yet loving and tender. It is unfortunate that not all earthly fathers follow that model and consequently, many people today cannot grasp the concept of a loving Heavenly Father because even the word conjures memories of pain, rejection or abuse. Christian fathers bear a greater responsibility to represent the best of God the Father in a fatherless world. We celebrate fathers that honor their families by putting their faith in Jesus Christ and demonstrating the best of what God's man can be.
