1 John 3:1-2
1 See what [an incredible] quality of love the Father [God] has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him.
2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God’s children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.
12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him [Jesus], He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—
13 Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]
17 May [Jesus] Christ through your faith actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people], the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it;
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of [Jesus] Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [that you may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a person wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!
16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.
6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!
Romans 8:14-16 and Galatians 4:6 refer to God as “Abba.” This name does not merely mean “Father.” This name is more like “Daddy” or “Papa,” a term of great affection, close personal relationship, and love.
If you were to contrast these two names, perhaps you’d agree with these generalities:
“Father” is the one who disciplines his children when they are naughty. “Abba” counsels them and tells them the reasons why their disobedience hurt others as well as hurting them.
“Father” teaches his children to work, while “Abba” teaches his children how to enjoy their lives.
Take a moment to realize that it is God Who named Himself “Abba” in these two Bible passages. Said another way, God not only names Himself your Father, but He also names Himself your Abba.
1 Corinthians 13:7
7 [God’s] Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
