Have you ever thought about God as a daddy? Galatians 4:6 says, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." Abba is the Aramaic word meaning Daddy, Father. It's a term of warm affection, intimacy, and respect for one's father. Now, to some that may sound like an irreverent way to address God, but Jesus called God, "Our Father," in Matthew 6:9 and He gave us that same right. In America, children call their fathers, Daddy. But in the Middle East, they say Abba. Jesus says that we can call the great God of the Universe, Abba Father. Daddy Father.

Following this series I will begin a New Series on Sunday February 5, 2017 at 10AM at Lakeview Resort in Morgantown, WV 26505 title "Love has Actions". It is a great month at Restoration Church International. I personally invite you to join us Wednesdays and Sundays.
God is love and He loves you and I. When someone loves someone they will do anything for them. When we love someone we think about them throughout the day. When we are in love we consider the other person in all of our decisions, purchases, commitments and actions. We can become hurt, disappointed or filled with joy and anticipation depending on how the relationship is going.
February has long been referred to as Love Month. I pray that you will take time to consider those you love and those that love you. Need help? Come see us this month we have something for everyone.
