As we approach Fathers Day I have been thinking about what are the character traits of a godly father? One of the best things a married father can do for his children is to faithfully love his wife. For it is in this very act that children consistently witness an example of Christ's "I-have-your-best-interest-in-mind" kind of love in action.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.“ Ephesians 5:25
A godly father recognizes that his relationship with his wife is his second most important priority, and only follows his relationship with Jesus Christ. We not only model for our kids what it means to be a good spouse, we teach them that giving ones self up for someone else is how Christ lived and how He wants us to.
This Sunday being Father’s Day is a great day to invite a father and his family to the Celebration. At all of our services we will have great music, inspiring videos, and a drawing for our “Dad of the Day”.
