Pastor Aries’ Sermon 17, June, 2017

Father’s Day.

We often neglect father’s day as compared to mother’s day.
Father’s day is only a day. Fatherhood is lifetime.

There is need for father and mother to work together at home.
In Heroes of Faith, we read about Isaac.
He entered into the hall of Faith list

Heb 11:20
Isaac’s great act of faith was nothing spectacular.
He simply became a good father for his two sons.
Jacob and Esau were not easy children.
Jacob was swindler, Esau was masculine and temperamental.

Father, you are a hero of faith by believing the best for your family and children.
Your children need you to believe in them.

Two areas father needs to believe.

Father needs to believe in himself.
Many fathers are intimidated by the responsibility of fatherhood.
Some fathers see themselves as losers.
However, do our children  see us the same way as we see ourselves?

Many men feel they have failed as fathers hence they do not exercise their authority as fathers.
Children see their parents as father and mother, not husband and wife.
Even if the couple is divorced, father should not stop being a father, unless the father is physically or emotionally abusive.
Their criticism of you comes from immaturity and not their real self.

Every father needs to believe in his children.
If God Heavenly Father can believe in us, fathers should believe in their children.
God has not stopped working, hence fathers should continue believing.
Children see fathers as authority figure.
Children feel mothers love children no matter what.
Children feel they have to earn love from dad’s

Fathers are great figures in the eyes of children.
Hence, more than anyone else, children want to please their fathers.
Father’s influence for good in children’s life is enormous
Children are watching fathers, studying fathers’ body language and words.

Children are shaped by both the presence and absence of fathers
Don’t give up.
Just because you think you are not a good husband, does not qualify you from becoming a good father.

Abraham made a mistake by sleeping with Hagar to help God, he did not pray.
Abraham must have regretted his mistake.
Nevertheless, he passed on the lesson to Isaac.
Hence, when Rebecca was barren, Isaac prayed instead of helping God.

Your children are looking for a model of quiet strength, calm confidence and self control.
