For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:Romans 8:15-16
Prayer is enabled by the Spirit, directed to the Father. Not just the Father of Jesus Christ, but our Father!
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy nameMatthew 6:9
Yes He is “Our Father!”
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,Ephesians 3:14-15
We have His name! But He is not the Father of all.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.John 8:44
If God is your Father – you can talk to your Father.
If God is not your Father – you can be adopted today!
