The use of the term Abba (Daddy, papa, baba) settles our relationship with God. He is our father; we become his sons or daughters through the invitation of Jesus didn't say pray this way; "Dear God father of Jesus". He gave us access to God by telling us to pray this way:"Our Father". This relationship assures us that God loves us no matter what we do, we don't deserve such love.
The Father does not treat us as if we were lumps of clay to be thrown away but as his children whom He loves in a special way. Jesus took the burden of our sin in himself so that we can go to our Father in Jesus name. "Neither is there salvation in any other name under the heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
The term Abba also determines our relationship to our fellow human beings. God's family is all-inclusive look around you at your family. The next time you are angered by someone or you doubt the worth of a person as valuable. He is God's child too and related to you. This is really, the only true value of any person, that he is a child of God. We cannot pray "our father and despise or hate any man; that would be a mockery. Actually, we cannot go further in our prayers until we can settle this matter in our hearts and minds. These words “Our father" in their true meaning forbids us to do anything but love every man.
