As we read and study the Bible, we will find many names for God. Jehovah, Elohim, and Yahweh are some names we may be more familiar with. But there is one name for God that we as Christians should know and remember, and that name is Abba. Abba is the Arabic word for Father. But more so it carries a sense of closeness with it. Today we might think of the word Daddy. Paul tells us in Romans 8:15; “…but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry, Abba, Father.” When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are adopted into God’s family. Romans 8:16-17 says; “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs-heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” We are made His children. Only true, born again Christians can call God Abba, Father. This means that we can approach God as a child would approach his or her father. God is the creator of the universe and everything in it, and He deserves all the respect and reverence we can give Him. But it should be comforting to us that He is also our Abba, Father and we can go to Him for anything, anytime we want. Hebrews 4:16a says; “Lets us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace…”
