The Best Name

The best name by which we can think of God is Father. It is a loving, deep, sweet, heart-touching name, for the name of Father is in its nature, full of inborn sweetness and comfort.

Therefore, also, we must confess ourselves to be His children, for by this name we deeply touch our God, since there is not a sweeter sound to the father than the voice of the child.

[Martin Luther]


Matthew 6:9 ... After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Psalm 89:26 ... He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

Romans 8:15 ... For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.❤
