He is Our Father!!
A Roman emperor, after a successful military campaign, was returning in triumph to Rome. Great throngs filled the city to welcome the mighty hero. While passing through one of the crowded thoroughfares, a little girl, wild with joy, dashed toward his chariot.
The officer stopped her and said: "That is the chariot of the emperor, and you must not attempt to reach him."
The little one replied: "He may be your emperor but he is my father!" In a moment she was not only in the chariot, but also in the arms of her father.
It is even so with true believers. While God is the Emperor of all men. He is that, and infinitely more, to us He is our Father!
[J. C. Pittman]
Matthew 6:9 ... After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
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.
Philippians 4:20 ... Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.❤
