ROBBIE WILLIAMS SINGS ….. “GO GENTLE”……EVERYONE DESERVES A FATHER LIKE THIS

I like Robbie Williams, he’s come out of the ashes and risen to love Jesus, to turn his life around and then to write lyrics like these. Everyone deserves a father like this.( see lyrics to song “GO GENTLE” by Robbie Williams-see link below)

While almost any man can father a child, there is so much more to the important role of being dad in a child’s life. A father’s role is so important, he has to be a:- caregiver, protector,  provider, teacher,  nurturer, advisor, psychologist, nurse, a friend and more. A father’s role is central to the emotional well-being of their children especially during those formative years till the age of about 5 years. A father has to wear many hats and they cannot be good at all of them.

The Christian father is really an instrument in God’s hand. A father’s first responsibility is to acquaint his children with Scripture. The means and methods that fathers may use to teach God’s truth will vary. As the father is faithful in role modelling, what children learn about God will put them in good standing throughout their earthly lives, no matter what they do or where they go.

We live in a broken world, no judgements needed, fathers have issues too.

If your earthly father cannot or could not be the caring, nurturing father that you deserved, allow God the Father to be your father for you, for healing to occur ……..

 LET GO

FORGIVE

SURRENDER TO GOD

ASK GOD TO BE YOUR FATHER

 SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GOOD ROLE MODELS

ALLOW JESUS TO TOUCH YOU AND TRANSFORM YOU

IF NEEDED, SEEK HELP FROM A CHRISTIAN COUNSELLOR

MEN HAVE TO STEP UP!!!!!!

Today our children are lost!!!!!!!!! We have few good models whom they can look up to. The media, Hollywood, the music industry is stealing our children away from us parents. Movie themes, music lyrics, satanic symbols are all so damaging to impressionable minds.

Men have to stand up and defend God their wives daughters, sons, family and homes. God made men to be leaders, not the type that are going to suppress women and children but ones who will stand up for the truth and be good models to their children. Children learn masculinity through fathers and strong male figures. What makes a man righteous is not obedience to the law but faith in Jesus Christ. We have been empowered by the grace of Christ won for us by the cross not just an intellectual faith but a commitment  to Christ. The Holy Spirit (The spirit of God and the spirit of Jesus)the comforter will lead us to the truth and help us.

John Eldredge in the book “WILD AT HEART” addresses how men have to stand up and discover the heart that God gave them. It goes back to the wound that we have inherited from the fall of Adam and Eve. How men have to stand up and be who God created them to be. Sure we all fail from time to time and fall short especially when the world will try to drag us down. This book will help men find out how to be a better man, father, husband, friend.

This means that we should live and act in a way that supports the gospel. We should also arm ourselves with knowledge, both of the gospel (Ephesians 6:10-17) and of the world around us. First Peter 3:15 says, “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord”. All we can do is live and teach as Christ would and let Him take care of the rest.

WE NEED GREAT MEN TO STAND UP FOR GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST

STRONG MEN BUILD STRONG FAMILIES, STRONG FAMILIES BUILD A GREAT COMMUNITY, A STRONG COMMUNITY BUILDS A GREAT NATION

MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER FORM BUILDING BLOCKS TO STRONG FAMILIES. SO MEN NEED TO STAND UP FOR GOD, THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN AND HONOUR GOD BY THEIR ACTIONS

Large numbers of men who were baptized Catholic, have left the Church and the majority of those who remain are “Casual Catholic Men”, men who do not know the Catholic faith and don’t practice it.

With the question of equality of value being settled in Genesis 1. God’s design and purpose for men and women have distinction in roles. The portrait given to us in Genesis is very much that of a man who was in need of a companion to complete him.( Genesis 1:26-28) .

God made for man a woman as a helpmate–someone who would meet his needs and he would meet hers. This is a Complementarian view of the male/female relationship that says while men and women are equally valuable (fully deserving of dignity and respect) that they are designed with complementary purposes so that they might fulfill what the other lacks. Seen in this light, it should be understood that neither men nor women are superior to the other because we mutually benefit from the other sex by God’s design and purpose.
