Our Father

One of the most incredible honors and privileges that we as Christians enjoy is being able to call God our Father. To think that the Creator and Ruler of the universe wants us to relate to Him as His children is beyond comprehension.

We clearly are not worthy of such an intimate relationship with God. Paul declares, “There is none righteous, not even one; there is none who understands, there is none who seeks God” (Rom. 3:10-11). As sinners, we do not even want a relationship with God.

But God desires a relationship with us and has gone out of His way to make that relationship with Him possible. In Gal. 4:4 we read, “When the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” God, the Father, sent God, the Son, to be judged for our sins so that we could become God’s children through faith in Jesus. That is amazing!

Now, God enjoys it when we call Him our Father. Jesus instructed us to pray, “Our Father Who is in heaven” (Mt. 6:9). We can address God as our Father with full confidence that He loves us and cares about all our needs.
