Father’s Day, 2021

Galatians 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”

 Ἀββᾶ/abba is the Greek word for Father. HELPS word studies defines the term accordingly: “Father,” also used as the term of tender endearment by a beloved child, i.e. in an affectionate, dependent relationship with their father; “daddy,” “papa.”

The Greek word has its origins in the Aramaic language of Jesus. The term is “ab” or “Father”. Ab is often used in reference to God in Jewish prayers.

Psalm 127:3-5 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Children are a gift from God, an example of His grace and blessing.

Genesis 33:5 And when Esau lifted up his eyes and saw the women and children, he said, “Who are these with you?” Jacob said, “The children whom God has graciously given your servant.”

Wishing all the Fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day!!! Enjoy your blessing from our Heavenly Father!!!
