GOD, OUR FATHER: THE MOST WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP

SCRIPTURE: GALATIANS 4:1-7

KEY VERSE: ROMANS 8:15


I HAD A WORDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH MY FATHER. HE WAS MY ROLE MODEL. I WANTED SO MUCH TO BE LIKE HIM, TO HAVE HIS HEART, AND HE HAD A BIG ONE. HE WAS OUR PROVIDER, PROTECTOR, AND OH HOW HE LOVED TO HELP PEOPLE; THAT'S WHAT I ADMIRED ABOUT HIM MOST. HE WAS MY GUIDE, COMFORTER, AND CORRECTOR. I LOVED HIM SO MUCH.

MY FAVORITE AND MOST WORDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS AS MY FATHER. THIS HAS BEEN MOST ESPECIALLY TRUE SINCE MY DAD DIED, BECAUSE GOD PROMISED IN PSALM 68:4-5 THAT HE WOULD BE A "FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS". THAT HAS BEEN A GREAT COMFORT TO ME OVER THE YEARS.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT GOD IS EVERYTHING TO US A FATHER IS:

*THE PROVIDER - PHILIPPIANS 4:19
*THE PROTECTOR - PSALM 18:3-1
*THE HELPER - PSALM 121
*THE GUIDE - PSALM 119:105
*THE COMFORTER - II CORINTHIANS 1:3-4
*THE CORRECTOR - HEBREWS 12:4-11

HOW CAN WE HAVE THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD? JOHN 1:12 TELLS US, "YET TO ALL WHO RECEIVED HIM (JESUS), TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN HIS NAME, HE GAVE THE RIGHT TO BECOME CHILDREN OF GOD." WHEN WE RECEIVE GOD'S SON, JESUS, AS OUR SAVIOR, WE BECOME GOD'S CHILD, WITH ALL THE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES THAT COME WITH THAT POSITION. ROMANS 8:15 AND GALATIANS 4:1-7 TELL US THAT AS ADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD WE SHARE WITH JESUS ALL RIGHTS TO GOD'S RESOURCES. AS GOD'S HEIRS, WE CAN CLAIM WHAT HE HAS PROVIDED FOR US--OUR FULL IDENTITY AS HIS CHILDREN, AND WE ARE GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE OF CALLING GOD "ABBA" WHICH IS THE ARAMAIC WORD FOR "DADDY".

HAVE YOU RECEIVED JESUS TODAY? IF YOU HAVEN'T, DO SO NOW AND KNOW THE JOY OF BEING PART OF GOD'S FAMILY.


I'M A CHILD OF THE KING
A CHILD OF THE KING
WITH JESUS MY SAVIOR
I'M A CHILD OF THE KING

"AND BECAUSE WE ARE HIS CHILDREN, GOD HAS SENT THE THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS, PROMPTING US TO CALL OUT, 'ABBA, FATHER'"
-GALATIANS 4:6
