For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in
him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into
the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved
through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not
believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the
only Son of God. ~ John 3:16-18 (English Standard Version)
God is our creator and father. It is through Jesus that we can have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. When me pray we call God our father as Jesus told us how he told us how to pray. God talks to us through his word in the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. ~ Matthew
6:9 (English Standard Version)
God is our Heavenly Father and he is the prefect father. Unfortunately, many of us do not have a Earthly Father or a Earthly Father at does not do a good job at being a father. It is from our father here on earth we get our biggest picture of our Heavenly Father. I will do something on the role of fathers later. But Fathers are very important part of our live not only for the example of God's love for us.
