Do you have such a personal relationship with God that you can call Him, “Abba, Father?”
Do you call Jesus your Christ, your Lord?
Today’s Advent reading reminded me of Matthew 1:21:
“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
and now for today’s Bible reading:
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
EVERY knee should bow… I pray that none of you are found bowing and confessing when it is too late.
