God the Father

Just before Jesus ascended to heaven, he told his disciples to make more disciples and to baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

In the Bible, the word "name" indicates character, function and purpose. Biblical names often describe the essential character of a person. Indeed, Jesus instructed his disciples to be baptized into the essential character of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in a close and intimate way.

We would correctly conclude that Jesus had much more than just a baptism formula in mind when he said, "Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

The Holy Ghost reveals the person of the risen Messiah and convinces us that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. As the Holy Spirit fills and guides us, Jesus becomes the center of our lives, and we come to know Him through faith and follow Him.

Jesus leads us to an intimate knowledge of the Father. He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life; Nobody comes to the Father because of me "(Joh 14,6).

We only know the Father as Jesus reveals Him to us. Jesus said, "That is eternal life, that they know thee, the only true God whom you have sent, Jesus Christ" (Jn 17,3).
When a person experiences this knowledge of God, that intimate, personal relationship of love, then God's love will flow through them to others - to all others, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Our modern world is a world of great confusion and seduction. We are told that there are a lot of "ways to God".

But the only way to know God is to know the Father through Jesus in the Holy Spirit. For this reason Christians are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
