Our Pops, who art in heaven

Jesus thought of God as “Abba”; literally, “Daddy.” When the early Christians called God “Daddy,” it was an intimacy born out of gratitude and honor.

The infinite, awesome God is honored when his children love him without fear. But we want to love him without awe.

We don’t come to him as a small dependent child would. We come to him jauntily, careless of our need, careless of what he would give us if we would come to him as our Daddy.

When Isaiah saw God high and lifted up, did he pray casually, as we do? Could you pray casually, if you saw God?

What do you see?
