Abba Father!!

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
 
Abba Father. These words show our inability to do anything good or worthwhile on our own. They show our humble and total submission to our God.  The word Abba is an Aramaic word that would most closely be translated as “Daddy.” It was a common term that young children would use to address their fathers. It signifies the close, intimate relationship of a father to his child, as well as the childlike trust that a young child puts in his “daddy.” Through the Holy Spirit whom we have received we cry out!!!
