Who is God the Father?
God the Father is the first Person of the Holy Trinity. He is called the Father because of His relation to the second Person of the Trinity (God the Son). As the Father He created all things through His Son (1 Cor. 8:6) and planned all things that will ever happen (Rom. 11:36). Before the world was around He chose those who would be saved (Eph. 1:4) as a gift to His Son (John 17:2, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 24).
The Father created all things through His Son
“Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist” (1 Corinthians 8:6)
The Father planned all things
“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen” (Romans 11:36)
The Father chose who would be saved
“Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love” (Ephesians 1:4)
