Robert Traill (Sermons from 1 Peter 1:1-4), Works 4:133-134:

This name, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, may be of great use to us in directing our walk and conversation, and behaviour towards God. Is God the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ? Then this may tell us how to guide all the providences of God towards us. Write but this name upon all providences, and how easy and sweet will they be? These are the doings of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. So are all your mercies; all your mercies come from the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, saith the apostle, Eph. 1:3, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Mercies are never rightly known when their author is not rightly known. They are but confused thoughts that the most part of people have concerning the providences they meet with, as concerning the God that they worship. They meet with merciful dispensations, and they are pleased with them, but they are not profited by them. The reason is, because they do not know who sent them. It is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ that hath shown me this mercy. Oh, what a great endearment of mercy, to know the name of the sender of it!
