B. GOD AS A LOVING FATHER The apostle Paul tells us in Romans 8:16 – God reveals Himself to mankind in the role of a Father in several contexts. The most important is that of a spiritual Father. God expresses all the qualities
of a loving Father.

7. He desires to grant us the ultimate gift-eternal life in His family (Roman 6:23; Titus 1:2) – if we repent of our sins and obey Him (Acts 2:38).

LIFE APPLICATION: If you have not yet experienced God as a personal, caring. loving Father, then you have much to look forward to. To learn more about who God is and how you can become His child. God is our Father not only in that he is our Creator but that he is also our Redeemer; this is what distinguishes the Christian’s relationship to God and what allows us to relate to him as Father.

CONCLUSION: God the Father is the Supreme Being in whom we believe, whom we worship, and to whom we pray. He is the ultimate Creator, Ruler, and Preserver of all things. He is perfect, has all power, and knows all things In Christianity, God is known as God the Father, God our Father, and God the Father of Jesus. It is through these truths of a relationship with our creator that God is seen as a father over all creation and personally to believers through
grace.

Scripture says God’s ways are “perfect” (Psalm 18:30), that He is a “faithful God who does no wrong,” and is “upright and just” (Deuteronomy 32:4). That makes Him the perfect Father. God the Father wants to have a close, “father-child” relationship with us.
