From Jehovah to Daddy

*

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.

The New Testament announces that henceforth Jehovah, creator and ruler of all things from eternity, has adopted us into his Heavenly Family - if we choose to accept it - and asked us to call him Daddy.

Henceforth we are no longer orphans in this world, need never again feel lonely, neglected or unloved.

*

In this life we are like homesick soldiers on active duty: we have a job to do and must do our best; but now have the assurance that after the tour of duty is over; after we have suffered, died and been resurrected; our eternal family is awaiting.
