Standing out note-worthily from the lyric of the 1968 song “Time of the Season”, the phrase ‘Who’s your daddy?‘ is a colloquial expression that is commonly used in a rhetorical manner as a boastful claim of superiority over the one listening. The Bible tells us that that those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, have been adopted into God’s family and in them is deposited the Holy Spirit of God (Ephesians 1:13-15), who makes it possible for that person to address God as ‘Abba, Father’ (Romans 8:15). In fact, the Bible informs us that God the Father greatly lavished His love toward men and women, that they should be called the children of God (1 John 3:1). This is who we are – Children of God, but in that same verse, it is also written, that though we are the children of God, the world does not know us as such, and the reason for that is, because the world did not know Him.
Many in the world today still do not know who Jesus is? He is the Only begotten Son of God, who shed His blood to remit our sins and paid its wages in full, by sacrificing His life in our stead.
The world will continue to not know Him, if we do not make Him known! So next time, somebody asks you, “Who’s your daddy?”, answer them (even if they meant it rhetorically).
Jesus Christ is our Lord, the Son of God, our Father and since He and God the Father are one (John 10:30), He is our Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6), in other words, Our Daddy.
Romans 8:14-16 (KJV)
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
