Upon your acceptance of Jesus, the Bible assures that your relationship with God changed from master-servant to father-child (Galatians 4:7a).
Sadly, I know that many people don’t have a good frame of reference for what a healthy father-child relationship is.
Yet, it’s crucial that we do, because the Bible hinges so much upon being a child:
- “Childlike” is how Jesus instructed we approach God (Matthew 18:3).
- Knowing God as “Abba, Father” is what Paul said is the foundation of our blessings (Galatians 4:7b).
