Dads who pray

“For their sakes, I sanctify myself” (John 17:19)  Good morning, dear friends.  In a few hours we will gather for worship at FBCSA.  On this Father’s Day it will be our privilege to read/reflect on Joshua’s words “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord”. (Joshua 24:15)  We will also consider his first words “Joshua said. . .’thus says the Lord’ “.  Amazing!  It is a great gift when a leader (Dad) prepares his heart so as to speak the word of the Lord to his family.  Not his own opinions.  Not his preferences. His words become, “the discipline and the admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4)  Gentlemen, will you consider the impact your relationship with God has on your family?  When we spend time with Christ in prayer, our words have authenticity and power.  Speaking with our Father prepares us to speak with our children. What great responsibility! He will help us.  I will see you in a few hours.
