Matthew 6:9 (KJV) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
The most revolutionary revelation in history was the teaching of Jesus calling God a Father. Hitherto, God was seen as a deity too far to be reached, unapproachable and cannot be close to but feared and dreaded.
The Muslims can never call God a Father, its a blasphemy to them. An attempt to say such will stir up repulsion and rebellion from within them and the same reaction is seen from the African traditional religionists.
Judges 13:22 says, ”And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God”.
Jesus didn’t come to give us a religion. Christianity is not a religion, it is a love relationship with God. There are lots of religions in the world. Christianity is not one of them. Religion is Man’s attempt to save himself, to help himself and strive to get God’s approval. Salvation is God’s attempt to save man, to help man and to accept and approve of man to walk with Him.
The greatest privilege God has called man into is sonship. He has chosen to have His life flow in us. He has decided to make us share in His divine nature; holiness and righteousness. He has decided to take delight in the lifting of our holy hands and in the offering of our lips in praise and adoration.
Romans 8:15 ‘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.’
Go into today knowing that God is your Father if you have accepted Christ as Lord, He lives inside of you and He is closer and more real to you than the very hair on your body.
Prayer: Pray that God reveals Himself to you more as a Father.
