Abba’s Own

Author: Savannah Coleman — Host: Andrew StevensPosted on: December 10, 2021

Our world is full of turmoil—torn apart by wars, filled with pain and brokenness. And yet, despite all the chaos, we continue to rise. Abba’s Own, we call ourselves. No longer are we enslaved by the Dark Shadow. We are free. Before Abba called us as His own, our sins consumed us, our minds were leading us to death. Seeing our need, Abba sent His only Son to sacrifice Himself for us. Believing in Him, His blood shed to save, we were enabled to have a right standing with Abba—adopted as His children forever, bearers of His glory. Abba chose us to be like His Son, the Light Bringer. This is what we strive for. While we look ahead for our full restoration, we groan with longing. We know our weakness in body and spirit, and we wait for the glorious freedom from death and decay that Abba has promised. He helps us in our weaknesses by deploying the Voice of Truth, who is as much a part of Abba as the Light Bringer Himself, a trifecta of unwavering power. The Voice of Truth and the Light Bringer plead with Abba on our behalf, in complete harmony with Abba’s will. How wondrous! Abba is for us! Who can stand against us? He who gave His own Son as a sacrifice for our sins—He has already given the ultimate. Considering this as Abba’s Own, we remind one another that He will surely give us everything we need. Here is the question we contemplate: Can anything separate us from Abba’s love? Today we wrestle, amid suffering and trials of numerous kinds, seldom finding reprieve. Does this mean He no longer loves us? We have concluded a resounding “No!” Even in the middle of all this, we know that overwhelming victory is ours through the One who loved us! Abba’s Own are convinced that nothing in all creation can separate us from His love for us. There will be wars, agony, sorrow, and fear, but nothing—not even the Dark Shadow or death itself—will be able to separate us from Abba’s love that was revealed to us through the Light Bringer. We are Abba’s—for eternity. • Savannah Coleman • Does all the tragedy and chaos in the world make you weary? If you know Jesus, you are not alone or hopeless. You are part of His people, and He lives in you through the Holy Spirit, giving encouragement and strength through the gospel. How does God carry us through hard times? No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39 (NLT)
