Father – His Love
By faith in Jesus, we were given a new nature… a divine nature. This gives us spiritual interests but we need also to know of the intimate relationship we have with the Father. That closeness will give us power, boldness.
We know that the Father’s delight was in Christ. Jesus was in the daily enjoyment of this relationship. Well, Scripture says, in speaking of Jesus:Ok. So that means that through faith, God has become a Father to us and thus, we, who are creatures of God by natural birth have become sons and daughters of the Father in our new birth through Faith and Redemption.
This relationship is so intimate, the word “Father” (Abba) in Syriac or Chaldee is found only 3 times (Mark 14:36; Rom. 8:15 and Gal. 4:6) and is a term expressing warm affection and filial confidence. The closest we have in the English language is “Daddy”.
The love of the Father towards us can be summarized in the following way with the related biblical verses:
