We call God “Father” because Jesus teaches his disciples that we are God’s children and should call God “our Father.” (Exodus 4:22; Psalm 73:15; Isaiah 43:6; Matthew 23:8–9; 2 Corinthians 6:18; see questions 39–40)

John Chrysostom
AD 407

And I will be to you a Father, and you shall be to me sons and daughters, says the Lord. Do you see how from the beginning the Prophet fore-announces our present high birth, the Regeneration by grace?
