We Cry "Abba Father!"
Scripture tells us that God's Spirit causes our spirits to call God "Abba Father." Those who have been born again, we are sons and daughters of our "daddy God." How often do we ponder what that means to be able to call God our father?
A good and loving father will listen to us when we need someone to just hear our hearts. He will defend us when the enemy rises up against us. He will deliver us when we are bound, even if that bondage is completely our fault. He will make sure we have what we need. And he will also displine us when we need correction. It's important that we begin our time with God realizing this about his nature, and today we talk about why.

Same Blood, Different Fathers
Jesus told the religious hypocrites that their father was the devil. If everyone's father was God, he would not have said this. Scripture says that we are given the spirit of adoption whereby we cry out "Abba Father!" This means that before we come to Jesus, we are not a part of the family of God.
It is God's design that we all be a part of his family. It is God's will that we all dwell in that place of peace and safety in the spirit. It is God's desire that we all experience the joy of his presence every single day of our lives, and that in his strength, we are the head and not the tail, more than conquerors in all things.
And yet for the majority of the people you and I pass every day, this is not the case. They are outside of the family of God, struggling with emptiness, confusion, lack of peace and true joy, carrying a burden of guilt, and heading for eternity in hell.
Wherever God has called you to reach out, that is your mission field. We all need to reach out to those around us, on the job, in our neighborhood, and in the other places we go. And we need to pray for and support those who are called to go into various parts of the world and reach out with the Gospel of Peace.
Currently there are more than 9,660,666 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 150,000 to 300,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
