The Bible often refers to God as our Father, and Jesus called Him Father on multiple occasions, such as in His prayer in Matthew 6:9 – “Our Father in heaven, Your name be honored as holy.” God, who is Lord of all, also cares personally for us as our loving Father. He gives us mercy and comfort [2 Corinthians 1:3–4] and peace beyond our understanding [Philippians 4:7]. He cares for us and our needs [1 Peter 5:7], and His love is so great for us that we are called His children [1 John 3:1]. In fact, He loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die for our sins [Romans 5:8] and He desires that no one should choose to be separated from Him forever [2 Peter 3:9]. Through these Bible passages, and many more, we can see that God truly cares for and loves everyone and wants us to have a relationship with Him as our wonderful and amazing Father.
