                                               Sermon Notes:

Three things we DADs can give our children.

  Destiny Affirmation Determination

Galatians 4:6   And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

  1. The Rewards of Fatherhood.

“Some of the greatest achievements in parenting are the uncelebrated victories won in the prayer closet.”

  1. The Prayers of a Father

“It’s more important what you say to God about your children than what you say to your children about God.”

  1. The Examples of a Father

“Trophies aren’t usually given for battles won in secret and the battle of manhood is most often fought in the obscurity of the heart.” Pastor Richard Daughtridge  ”

“Men today are measured by success, by wealth, by strength, by competition, by good looks, by dress, by esteem and social importance but the greatest scale a man can use is to measure himself is his relationship with his Godhis wife, and his children.” Pastor Richard Daughtridge

JOB 1:4 His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. [5] When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, “Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” This was Job’s regular custom.

  1. The  Spirit of a Father

How would you describe a spiritual man and why?

I’ve always believed that the stature of a man was more reflected in his private life than his public life. Jesus had a lot to say about this. The most impressive religious men of that day were the Scribes and Pharisees, or were they?   Let’s listen to what Christ said.

MT 6:6-7 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. [7] And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. [8] Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
