许多婴孩最初的发声，都是一些音节“ab, ab, ba, ba”。耶稣时代的婴孩也是这样称呼父亲，也就不足为奇了。当神拯救了我们，他也将自己的灵赐给了我们。圣灵在方方面面祝福我们，但关键的祝福之一，就是圣灵与我们一起祷告。当我们不知该如何用言语表达时，圣灵会为我们代求(罗马书8:26-27)，并且圣灵还以熟悉、信赖和尊敬帮助我们亲近神，因为我们称呼神为——阿爸父。
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
The first vocalizations of many babies are the syllables "ab, ab, ba, ba." Not surprisingly in Jesus' day, that was the name babies used for their fathers. When God saved us, he gave us his Spirit. The Holy Spirit blesses us in many ways, but one of the key blessings is his work with us in prayer. He intercedes for us when words won't do (Romans 8:26-27) and he helps us approach God with familiarity, dependency, and respect as we call God our Abba.
Abba Father, thank you so much for loving me, saving me, and inviting me into your family. Thank you for the Holy Spirit, who is helping me right now as I share my thoughts, words, and emotions with you. Thank you, dear Father, for giving me the power to be what you want me to be. In Jesus' name. Amen.
