Jesus must have felt like one of those guys who always gets in trouble for something. A lot of the things Jesus said and taught were so revolutionary for his time. It’s almost as if he were trying to get the religious leaders upset.
Like the time when he started his most famous prayer with the words ‘Our father’ (Matthew 6v9 http://bit.ly/1hltVNh). In a time where people were used to approaching God through a priest in a temple, Jesus invited His followers to draw closer with the words ‘Abba Father’ or literally ‘daddy God’
We also get to approach God directly when we pray and he loves it when we do.
Cos God is a relationship – and you’re invited in.
