Understanding God the Father
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, Abba , Father. Romans NIV. God is the Father of all in the sense that he created all and his love and providential care are extended to all Mt But not all are his children.
God the Father is a title given to God in various religions, most prominently in Christianity. In mainstream trinitarian Christianity, God the Father is regarded as the first person of the Trinity , followed by the second person, God the Son Jesus Christ , and the third person, God the Holy Spirit. In much of modern Christianity, God is addressed as the Father, in part because of his active interest in human affairs, in the way that a father would take an interest in his children who are dependent on him and as a father, he will respond to humanity, his children, acting in their best interests. In general, the title Father capitalized signifies God's role as the life-giver, the authority , and powerful protector, often viewed as immense, omnipotent , omniscient , omnipresent with infinite power and charity that goes beyond human understanding. In the New Testament , the Christian concept of God the Father may be seen as a continuation of the Jewish concept, but with specific additions and changes, which over time made the Christian concept become even more distinct by the start of the Middle Ages.
God the Father is the supreme ruler of the whole universe. Everything in the heavens and the earth is subject to His authority 1 Corinthians 1 Corinthians 27 For he has put all things under his feet. But when he said all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. He is spirit John John God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Life is inherent within the Father.
