Abba Father's Love is Foundational by Robert Ricciardelli
Christ restores our relationship to "Abba, Father", that is to be the foundation in all of our relationships. Abba means "Daddy", and expresses trust, belonging, and most of all intimacy. It does not mean authority, power, and control, that the word Father often evokes. Abba implies an embracing and nurturing love that transcends all the love that comes to us from our fathers, mothers, siblings, spouses, and lovers.
