HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!!

My Dad & nephew 

Dads… enjoy those little ones & soak up the time that you have with them. The Lord has entrusted them to you for a short season so take full advantage of it, for His glory. It may not seem like it at times, but children are the greatest blessing that the Lord could ever bestow upon a marriage. They allow you the opportunity to reflect the intimate care, self-sacraficial love, complete devotion, loving discipline, careful instruction, strong protection, and tender leadership that the Lord shows to His children. In doing so, your parental relationship with your children exemplifies the Lord’s relationship with His children like no other earthly relationship ever could!

As you meditate on this point, may it encourage you to take your parental responsibility with a sense of soberiety, aware of the fact that you are a steward, the Lord’s appointed overseer. Your children are not your own. Like everything else in heaven and on earth, they belong to our living Lord. Handle your little ones as such. Someday, you will have to stand before the Lord and give an account for everything in life, including your parenting. Like the servant in the parable of the tallents, may you be found to be a “good and faithful servant.”

On this Father’s Day, may you accept the blessing that the Lord has bestowed upon your life, seek to examplify Him in your parenting, and relish in the little ones that the Lord has entrusted to you… they will be grown & gone before you know it!

About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.
