God As Dad

 


“For the Spirit which you have now received is not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in which we cry out, Abba! Father!” - Romans 8:15 (AMP)

 

The word “Abba” is a transliteration. The word “Father,” is a translation. There is no English word that adequately conveys the meaning of the Aramaic word, “Abba.” This is why the translators have given us this transliteration - “Abba.” The word conveys a close intimacy that is reserved for parents and children. We might compare the word to Dad, but this doesn’t really do it justice. The first use of the term “Abba, Father” appears in Mark 14:36, when Jesus said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will.” This was a heart-cry from a Son to a Father!
