Thought For The Day by Al Boulden

Galatians 4:6-7 “Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba Father.’ So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child, and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”

Heirs to Heaven….God’s children. Can you believe it? Left to ourselves, committed sins separate us from God…..damned for eternal Hell. But God adopted those who surrender to Him, allowing us to call him Daddy (Abba translates into an affectionate name that a child calls his father.). The Spirit resides in every Believer to steer Godly thoughts and actions. We have ability to ignore God’s instruction, but consequences follow. Remember that obedience leads to blessing, while disobedience leads to punishment. Earthly fathers and mothers ought to raise children in the same manner. God loves His people enough to lavish and admonish. Thank our Father. Amen!

Lord, thank You for claiming us as Your children. Keep our ears tuned to the Spirit’s direction and use us as witnesses of Your amazing grace.

Praise Abba Father today.
