TOPIC: THE LOVING AND WINNING FATHER – 19th June 2022

Ephesians 5:23-30; GENESIS 18:19

 SPEAKER: DR henry owie

 

Introduction:

GOD is the ultimate loving and winning Father. That is the only infallible example of this type of Father that exists. The rest exists in earthen vessels. Our texts describe the love a father should have to his wife and then his children and finally showed us GOD-approved example of a father in the person of Abraham. We need to ask questions to be able to rightly do Justice to this message. Some of these would be:

 

·         Who is a father?

·         What qualifies someone to be called a father?

·         What factors make the person a father?

 

Who is a Father?

The Bible describes him as a person who begets another. Genesis 10:24 & 26 

II. What Qualifies Someone to Be Called A Father?

The three things stand out that qualifies a person to be called a father. 

makes a man. These are:

·         That he will command his children and household.

·         He will lead them to keep the way of the Lord.

·         He will teach them the principles of fairness and justice. A man who cannot do these, before the eyes of the LORD is less than a father.

 

III. What Factors Make A Person A Father?

1) ) He is a Big Picture Thinker.
