"To call God Father means, then, that he is near to us, intimately concerned with us, fond of us, even crazy about us. He is not the distant, clockmaker God of Thomas Jefferson and the Deists. This aloof God of the philosophers created the world to run by virtue of its own natural laws so that he could withdraw and occupy himself with more interesting pursuits." (Webpage: What Does it Mean to Call God Father? by MARCELLINO D'AMBROSIO, Ph.D.) On the other hand, God our Father allows us to suffer adversities in life because this is the way he corrects our misdeeds and teaches us to follows his ways.
Oh, my Father I love you. I know you have only one eternal Son, but more than eighty years ago my mother and father brought me to the church to be reborn in water and Spirit. No one can truly call you Father except by the power of the Spirit of your Son dwelling in our hearts. Your Son has taught me to pray, "Our Father who art heaven, hallowed be they name" because in so doing we give glory to you. As your Son always prayed to you, so must I turn to you every day You to care for my needs of soul and body. I cherish in my heart the words of the apostle John in whose words I see your promise of eternal life with the Father.
