On this Father’s Day, we Christians own the bragging rights to having the best Dad in the world….well, okay, the entire creation!! Who else can say, while someone is commenting on a beautiful sunset, “yeah, my Father made that” (through Christ Jesus)!
For us, however, the celebration as being the sons and daughters of our glorious Father (2 Corinthians 6:18) is a daily, evenly hourly, ongoing expression of gratitude….as is the continual praise to our Father as well as to our Lord Jesus Christ who has made all of this possible by His unfathomable, loving sacrifice.
We can truly cry out “Abba! Father!”. (Galatians 4:6)
Under the Strong’s Concordance definition of “Abba”, there is a notation given as to the full meaning of this word at http://biblehub.com/greek/5.htm :
“Abba – “Father,” also used as the term of tender endearment by a beloved child – i.e. in an affectionate, dependent relationship with their father; “daddy,” “papa.”
All you dads have a great Father’s Day!
