As your Pastor,
I want to take this moment to wish all of our men a very special Father’s Day.
It has been said, “That anyone can become a father, but it takes a special person to become a dad.” How true!

God has called all of us men to be Godly, but what does this look like?
There are two important traits that I want to share with you.
 
First, STAND STRONG.
We live in a world that is challenging the value of the father.
Satan’s attack is to discourage us and discouragement leads to self-doubt.
When we allow self-doubt to enter our behavior, we become weak.
The word of God calls upon men to remain strong.
This encouragement is found in 1 Corinthians 16:13 which reads, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
 
The second important trait is to BE HUMBLE.
For men, this can be challenging.
How is that? Because we men can have an ego and when that ego inflates, it can push God away.
Yes, God created us with strength, but when we rely on our own strength, we fail miserably.
So how do we keep our ego in check? By humility.
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 11:2, “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

So, if you want to be a Godly man or father,
remember to be strong and to be humble.
 
Happy Father’s Day!
