Guest speaker Gene Tope reminds us that God has adopted us as his children. The term “Abba” is used several places in the New Testament, and each time the word could be translated as “Daddy” or “Papa” indicating the kind of relationship God our Father wants to have with us, his children. This relationship is the source of the hope that lies within us.
