What Does God Expect Of Fathers

(Deut. 6:5-7) “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…” Before Israel went in to posses the Promised Land, the Lord warned Israel’s leadership of the importance of the above commandments. 1) To Love God first above all. God wanted the Fathers of Israel to give first place in the hearts to Him. Why?  Because He knew how quickly they would forget Him if they didn’t. If the fathers forget so will the family; therefore God commanded them to make God the Lord of their heart, soul, and might. 2) To Know the Word of God.  How can a father teach to his family that which he knows not himself? How sad it is when the leadership of the home does not know or study what they are to live and teach. Therefore, God expects fathers to study the Word so that the Word directs the home and not the world. 3) To Tea…

God's Promise To Those Who Love Him

(Rom. 8:28) “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” It takes a certain type of Christian to praise the Lord in all things, because that would mean that he/she would have to praise God for the bad as well as the good. The above verse however only works for those that love God, for if someone does not love and trust God in every situation, that person will become discouraged and even bitter in life. God wants all His children to believe in Him, but to also know that no matter what happens to them in this life, He has promises that we will see it turned for good if they will just love and trust Him. Too often God’s people think that God owes us an easy life, but just the opposite is taught in scripture. (John 16:33) “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” You see,even though we have…

The Promise Of God's Blessing

(Rom. 8:17) “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together” One of the greatest truths of Romans Chapter 8 is that we who are saved are promised the blessing of God now, and in eternity. 1) We have the promise of an “heirship” with Christ. Meaning that all that Christ inherits from his Father in eternity, will be ours as well. Why, because of our salvation we have been adopted into His family and are now “the sons of God.” 2)We have the promise of His Holy Sprit’s help. Once saved, God’s Holy Spirit not only indwells the believer forever, but also guides and comforts him as he travels life’s journey. He is our intercessor with God. Not only does He pray constantly for us (26,) but he also possesses and reveals to us the perfect will and way of God. And if we as believers communicate with God’s Spirit, we will glory in the perfect will of God. 3) We have the promise of his purpose in suff…

(Romans 8) - God's Promises To Every Believer
