Dad, You Matter

Today, in this ever-darkening world, the need for and importance of a father is seeming to dwindle. Fathers are mocked on tv and portrayed only as stupid, dumb, useless, clueless, and often the source of the problem the strong, brave, brilliant, super-like mom has to fix. Is this how we are to treat and portray our fathers? Do fathers matter to God? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the importance and necessity of fathers in his Father’s Day message, Dad, You Matter.

Ephesians 6:1-4
Nehemiah 4:14

Dad, You Matter

Dad, your role as the father is important; you matter. You cannot be replaced. You have an essential part to play in the raising of your children, never forget that.

14 And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.”

Nehemiah 4:14

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:1-4

1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life that is in Christ Jesus, To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day.

2 Timothy 1:1-3

1 There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job, and that man was blameless and upright, one who feared God and turned away from evil. There were born to him seven sons and three daughters. He possessed 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, and 500 female donkeys, and very many servants, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the east. His sons used to go and hold a feast in the house of each one on his day, and they would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. And when the days of the feast had run their course, Job would send and consecrate them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my children have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did continually.

Job 1:1-5

Dads Represent

Over the last few decades, fathers have become more and more absent from their children’s lives. Many children today don’t have a father figure in their life anymore. In fact, many don’t even have a male presence in their life to help guide them. There’s a rise in gang violence, children and young adults getting arrested, fights, and shootings in schools. Could this be connected to the rise in father absence in our homes today? According to our ever-changing culture, fathers aren’t important to the family, but is this true? Are fathers replaceable? Is a father necessary to have in the household? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the importance of a father in his Father’s Day Message, Dads Represent. Happy Fathers Day!

Proverbs 15:5

Dads Represent

Importance of Fathers

Dads represent our Heavenly Father while we’re here on earth. Fathers lead and teach the household in the ways of righteousness.

12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 20:12

The righteous [man] who walks in his integrity—blessed are his children after him!

Proverbs 20:7

The Love of a Father

Fathers are to love their children as the LORD loves us.

11 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline, and do not resent His rebuke, 12 because the LORD disciplines those He loves, as a father the son he delights in.

Proverbs 3:11-12

20 And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate.

Luke 15:20-24
