Matthew 6:9a says, "This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven..."
Think on this. For those of us who are believers in Christ, God is our Father. Jesus taught His disciples the way to pray. He included that just as God is Jesus’ Father, so He is our Father. And though we cannot see Him in heaven, He is there with Jesus who is preparing a place for us. The Holy Spirit is now with us to show us how to live until we get there.
Isn’t it wonderful that our Father in heaven wants to talk to us and hear from us? Jesus has given us access to the very throne room of God. He tore the temple veil in two so we could enter the Holy of Holies, the place where God dwelt on earth.
Amazingly, that throne room now resides in our hearts and God, our Father, meets us there. It’s really too wonderful for words.
And there you go!
