God or Abba

The only time Jesus used the word 'God' was on the cross when He was quoting Psalm 22 (My God, My God, why has thou forsaken Me). Up till then He'd always used the word 'Abba'.

I'm fairly sure I knew Abba as a child. And then I was taken to church and taught about God.

Abba is someone you can never fully know but who just loves you to bits. God seems to be a word that is used like a whip to get you to conform. I've had so many people telling me what God is like. And yet if God is God how can He be encompassed by anyone's imagination.

Jesus gave many parables about Abba. And He also said 'If you have seen Me, you have seen Abba'. I think I'll stick with that for now.
