Word from the Pastor

...He was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane just before He was crucified. 

Mark 14:36 says "And He (Jesus) said, Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."

In verse 33 we are told that Jesus was troubled and deeply distressed. When we face times of trouble and are distressed, we too can call out "Abba, Father."

Romans 8:14 and 15 says,

"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.  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."

Life can seem overwhelming at times; but thank God we have Abba Father, Daddy God to turn to. We can't always put our trust in people, but we can trust in Abba Father. He loves us unconditionally. Our strength is not in others or ourselves but in the Lord God Almighty.

Paul said in Ephesians 6:10,

"Finally, my brethern, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might."

We can be strong in the Lord by staying in close relationship with Him. Remember our Heavenly Abba Father is:

Omnipotent - All Powerful

Omniscient - All Knowing

Omnipresent - All Present

All Loving Abba, Daddy.

How well do you know Abba, Father God? Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you all.

     God Bless You!
