Abba, Father Love

We have seen that the Lord calls us to love Him with our whole hearts and that this love is to manifest itself in obedience to His revealed will. No doubt, we have felt the weight of that command as we realize that we miss the mark and fall short, that is, we sin. But we are not without hope because we look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. We apply to Him for grace and we see that because Jesus was faithful to go to the cross, our sins are nailed to the cross and forgiven in the courtroom of God’s justice. We cry, Abba, Father and we trust Him to grant us His Spirit so that the love that He has poured into us through Jesus will also flow out of us back to Him and out to His people. This is what He promises us as we remember the efficacious death of Jesus to save us from our sins and to transform us into the image of God.
