Who’s your daddy? That seems to be a phrase people like to throw around a lot. Someone said it yesterday in passing and I started thinking, do we really know who our Daddy is? If we did, would we live like we do?
If we knew our Daddy was the King, would we do the things we do and say the things we say [Revelations 19:16]? Or would we choose our words more carefully and think through the ramifications of our actions? If we knew our Daddy was the Creator of all things, would we take better care of our planet [Genesis 1:31]? If we knew our Daddy was in a gentle whisper, would we sit quietly waiting to hear what He had to say [1 Kings 19:12]?
So many of us walk through life professing to be a Christian, which means Christ one, and yet we don’t know the God we profess to believe in and identify with at all. If we truly knew our Father God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit, we wouldn’t worry about things that have no eternal value [Matthew 6:25-30]. We would fix our eyes upon Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith [Hebrews 12:2].
We need to take the time to crawl up in our Daddy’s lap and get to know Him. “Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water” [Hebrews 10:22]. Then when someone comes along and asks “Who’s your daddy?” we can respond with bold assurance.
