Maybe you have heard, some of your friends and family member call God Father and you don’t know why should there call God, Father. Addressing the living God when praying is another way of how quickly you want your prayers to be answered.

We have many names in the word of God, that is been used to address the Living God.

Examples are;

  1. Elohim Chayim—He is the Living God. (Joshua 3:10),
  2. Jehovah-Jireh—the Lord will provide. (Genesis 22:9-12; 13-14)
  3. Jehovah-shalom—the Lord is Peace. (Judges 6:22-24)
  4. El Elyon= He is your Sovereign or God Most High. El Elyon is first used in Gen 14:18.
  5. El Kanna—The Jealous God. (Exodus 34:14) / (Exodus 20:5)
  6. Jehovah Nissi—He is my banner.

All this name are used to address the Living God.

Now when Our Lord Jesus Christ came to us on this earth he also addressed the Living God, by calling him Our Father in Heaven or Father.

Why did our Lord Jesus Christ address Almighty God as Father instead of God or any of the names in the Word of God {old testament}?

Almighty God is good and great God and always will be.

Matthew 3:17 English Standard Version (ESV)

and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased.”

Luke 9:35  (ESV)

35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One;[a] listen to him!” Now, this scripture tells us, Jesus Chris is the son of God even the demons know that.

Mark 5: 6-7KVS

6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

With this scriptures, we can say Our Lord Jesus Christ has the right to call The living God Father.

What right do we have to Him Our Father?

In our life, we know that if anybody is affected with HIV/AIDs and his/her blood is transmitted to another person he/she also get affected right. This the same way we always partake in the Lord Supper so now the blood of our Lord Jesus is now in us and we are in him, don’t forget that he told us in John 15:7 If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, so this means that we are in him and he is in us so if we will remain there not going out of him we have the right us a son to ask of anything and it shall be given onto us.

Let take one Bible quote here

Luke 22:19

19And He took the bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body, given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

So now we have the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in us that makes us a son, we no longer live but is Christ that lives in us Galatians 2:20.

So now we know we are a son. let get started on how we can pray to our Father in Heaven the best way and more.
