Today's Verse : Galatians 4:6


April 6, 2012

Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our
hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father."
-- Galatians 4:6

The first vocalizations of many babies are the syllables "ab,
ab, ba, ba." Not surprisingly in Jesus' day, that was the name
babies used for their fathers. When God saved us, he gave us his
Spirit. The Holy Spirit blesses us in many ways, but one of the key
blessings is his work with us in prayer. He intercedes for us when
words won't do (Romans 8:26-27) and he helps us approach God with
familiarity, dependency, and respect as we call God our Abba.

Abba Father, thank you so much for loving me, saving me, and
inviting me into your family. Thank you for the Holy Spirit, who is
helping me right now as I share my thoughts, words, and emotions
with you. Thank you, dear Father, for giving me the power to be
what you want me to be. In Jesus' name. Amen.
