“So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, ‘Abba, Father.’” - Romans 8:15

In Romans 8:15 Paul tells us that we have “received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out Abba, Father.”

You may be asking yourself, just what does Paul mean by saying we cry out “Abba, Father”?

“Abba” is an Aramaic word which means “my daddy” or “my papa”.

What Paul is trying to convey through this statement is that when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are then adopted into the family of God. We become His children and He becomes our “Heavenly Father”. This new relationship with GOD is so deep and so personal that we can now, naturally, call him “daddy”, or “Abba Father”.

Abba Father, adopt me today. I am Your child, and You Are my Daddy. Amen.
