In each of Paul's epistles within the first seven versus he makes this declaration. "Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ " first Corinthians 1:3. It is my understanding that "Grace and peace" are a result of God being Father. Why are there so many believers in the world who do not have Peace? This is because they know Him as the Omnipotent God but have never come to know Him as Father. There is no way to know God as Father and not have the peace of God the Father. Many believers know Him in many different ways but never know Him as Father. Many use the term Father but that is all it is, not a heart knowledge indwelling the believer. To know Him as something less than Father is to put yourself on a lesser plane then God intended you to be.
