Abba Father

Galatians 4:3-7

Intro: We are through the Spirit of Christ made heirs and joint heirs with Jesus. We have been given all the privileges that come with sonship. We are the sons of God, and he is our father. We were strangers, but now we are his children; therefore, we are subject to his blessings. It is like the story of the boy who was taken by his father to the fair. His dad said that he could ride all the rides and play all the games that he wanted. He bought a roll of tickets that the boy could have never used up, and he promised that there was more where that came from, if needed. Another boy came along and put out his hand asking for a ticket, but the Father refused him. “These tickets are for my son,” the Father told the strange boy. But the son came by and said, “It’s okay to give him all the tickets he asks for, Dad. He’s my best friend.” The father gave the boy all the tickets he asked for out of love for his son! So also, we experience the grace of the Father through fellowship with the Son. Through the Spirit of Christ, we are the sons of the Father. Thank God for the Heavenly Father:

I Cor 8:5 6 “For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”

Eph 4:4 6 “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

I Jn 3:1 3 “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”

Isa 63:16 “Doubtless thou art our father...” “thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.”

Isa 64:8 “But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”

Rom 8:14 17 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.”

Abba Father as noted in Romans 8 and our text denotes a very personal relationship. It is not a proper name for a father, but it is a personal name for him. It is like a baby saying, “Da-Da.” It denotes a closeness of the Father-Son relationship. Our Father:
