What does God mean to you? Is He precious in your eyes, so much so that you call Him your Father? If so, listen to what Peter said, how that should show up in your life and how you should be thinking,

And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (1 Peter 1.17–19). 

Show that God is your Father by conducting your life in fear, knowing that the Father redeemed you from your former manner of ungodly living by sacrificing His precious Son for you.
