NKJ Mark 14:36
And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless,
not what I will, but what You will."
Jesus asked GOD, according to all divine possibilities and according to a heavenly mercy,
to reduce man's pain or sufferings that was in Him. Like any other common man.
1.- Abba Father. (From the Greek word Daddy)
a) It's what a son calls his father when there is a deep need.
b) Jesus talked to GOD with the confidence and love as HIS Son.
c) We can call GOD our Father because of Christ, because of the Holy Spirit.
1 We can't call him Father if we are not sealed with the Holy Spirit.
2 It is meaningless calling him Abba Father, if the Son of God has not washed your sins.
II.- A real father must be a protector. GOD is our Protector.
a) NKJ Joshua 1 :5
..... "I will not leave you nor forsake you."
b) NKJ 2 Chronicles 7:14
"if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face,
and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their
sin and heal their land
III.- A father should be a provider.
GOD is our Provider. Elohim Ra-ah (raw aw)
a) NKJ Genesis 22:8
And Abraham said, "My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering."
So the two of them went together.
b) NKJ Matthew 3: 17
And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
c) NKJ Matthew 17:5
While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly
a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!"
IV.- A real father is a spiritual leader in his family.
a) David wasn't a good father, but he learned.
b) He directed Salomon not to himself, but in to GOD.
NKJ 1 Kings 2:2-4
2 "I go the way of all the earth; be strong, therefore, and prove yourself a man.
3 "And keep the charge of the LORD your God: to walk in His ways,
to keep His statutes, His commandments, His judgments, and His testimonies
as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turm;
4 "that the LORD may fulfill His word which He spoke concerning me, saying,
'If your sons take heed to their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart
and with all their soul,' He said, 'you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel.'
NKJ Proverbs 22:6
