When the New Testament uses the term God, it is easy to tell within the context that it is referring to the Father. What this means is that the most significant relationship within the Trinity is not that of a servant to a king, but a Son to a Father. This should change your understanding of Christianity because ultimately Christianity is not about obedience but relationship, relationships of love. Romans 5:8 says, "God is continually recommending his own passionate delight for us in that while we were yet continually sinners, Christ died for us." In verse eight, we can easily see that it is God the Father who is recommending His love to us, because in the same verse it shows that He has given His Son.
The great love affair within the Trinity is the Father-Son relationship, and the Father of Jesus is recommending the kind of love that exists within the Trinity between Him and His Son. His love is not based on what we have done as sinners, but it is based on God's passionate delight in our person. God loves who we are and hates what we do when we sin. That is the love the Father is recommending!
