Honor the Father of Fathers

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son and threw his arms around him and kissed him. - Luke 15:20

It is not easy being a Dad. It is a difficult balance between provider, protector and tender-hearted care-giver. How can the firm hand of discipline equally cradle and comfort? Great, big hands that fumble with little buttons and ribbons can hold enormous love and patience. God, the Father, is the model for this dance of opposites, the range of emotions, demonstrating loving kindness mixed with uncompromising truth. Jesus cleared the temple of those who threatened His family, as well as, wept over Jerusalem for the prodigal children who had wandered away. It is his commitment that makes a man a father in this "easy come, easy go" world. It is his love that makes a father a dad.

Jesus came to an earthly existence to show everyone the way to the Father, especially those that knew little or nothing about Him. He showed us that sometimes being in a family means sacrifice. It often requires putting someone else’s feelings and needs above our own.  God, the Father, demonstrated the extent He would go to make us part of His family through the sacrifice of His own Son. For us, it may be the sacrifice of time, or finances, or exercising Tough Love when it hurts our hearts.

The most powerful man is only as strong as his heart – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. A small muscle, the size of your fist, is all that keeps his blood pumping and his body working. The love in his heart generates the strength of his character and the cohesion of his family. The King of his heart determines the depth of his wisdom and the capacity of his legacy. The example he sets in the home, the church and the community – the “talk he walks” – is the true measure of a man.

Calvin Coolidge said, "It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow." Yes, men carry a heavy responsibility in the Christian world – that of living out the example of our Heavenly Father. There are many people today who cannot comprehend a loving, faithful God, because they felt unloved or abandoned by their earthly fathers. We celebrate fathers that honor their families by putting their faith in Jesus Christ and demonstrating the best of what God's man can be. At CBF, we invite you to come be a part of God, the Father's family.
