Read Mark 14:36; Romans 8:12-15; Galatians 4:4-7

“Dads are ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers and singers of silly songs.” ~Pam Brown

Abba: An Aramaic term which expresses deep affection, confidence, and trust. It signifies the close, intimate relationship of a father and his child, as well as the childlike trust that a young child puts in his “daddy.”

  • And is there for all things.

  • And can do all things.

  • And knows all things.

2. He is always showing it. (Romans 8:12-15)

  • By His leading.

  • By His grace.

  • By His assurance.

3. He is always faithful. (Galatians 4:4-7)

  • A Father of his word.

  • A Father of hope.
