Father Of Jesus - Colossians 1:3

 ...the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ...

We know that there is only One God Who is revealed in three distinct Persons.  This statement of Paul's shows relationship with the Godhead.  It is a loving relationship of authority, not one of superiority.  Jesus related to the Father - and invited us to as well - as the loving and caring One Who looks after us and provides all our needs.  Jesus never walked in fear or lack because He had perfect confidence in His Father.  The greatest horror of the crucifixion was having that relationship temporarily broken.  We can never understand the depth of the pain, confusion, loneliness and rejection Jesus felt at that time.  And - thanks to Jesus - we will never have to know it unless we reject Him as Lord and Saviour.
