Heavenly Father, Heavenly Dad

In James 4:8 God tells us to draw near to him and he will draw near to us.  There is an opportunity for us to have a closer relationship with God.  The relationship can be more than the formal "Father," it can be that of "dad!"  The story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15, gives us a glimpse of how God waits for us with open arms and draws us in!
