Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers!

Let me tell y’all, we need y’all to be representatives of God in
these days. We need y’all to be the examples of a life
unashamedly lived by faith in God. We need y’all to know the word
of God and to be our teachers. We need to see y’all taking stands
for what is right. We need y’all to love us as God loves us. We
need y’all to say “well done” when we do right and discipline us
when we do wrong. Fathers, y’all are important to us ‘cause God
made y’all important.

Fathers, some of us have a problem relating to God because we
have equated what God as Father is like to what our earthly
fathers are like. Pops, y’all got to clean that up. We need y’all to
be good examples of fatherhood.

Fathers, we know that y’all did not start this. This has been going
on for generations. But we want y’all to show us and our
communities a new example. Break the cycle of less than God like
images that y’all inherited. We believe in y’all. Y’all can do it.

Fathers, we need y’all to blow up the truth about men in church.
We need to see y’all in church. We are watching y’all. We know
you can sing. We wanna know why you ain’t singing. We know
you have skills. We wanna know why you ain’t using those skills.
Where are you, fathers? We need you.

Thank you, fathers, for providing for us. We appreciate that. Thank
you, fathers, for protecting us. We appreciate that. Thank you,
fathers, for introducing us to Jesus, the church, faithful living and
discipleship. We absolutely appreciate that. Those values will last
us our entire lives and on into eternity.

Fathers, our greatest joy will be to spend all of eternity with y’all.
Y’all prepared yourselves for eternity and then y’all prepared us
for eternity. It is our prayer that for y’all’s faithfulness as fathers,
y’all will hear Jesus say “Well done.”

A most Happy Father’s Day, y’all!
