Do You Want God or What God Has?
by Ministry Support on February 15th, 2022
“Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’” - Matthew 22:37  Yesterday, we talked about sacrifice. As a believer, you will have to sacrifice something (probably on more than one occasion) at some point in your life. The Bible says so. Romans 12:1 tells us that we should present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God. God’s Word is f...  Read More

A Father To The Fatherless
by Ministry Support on June 21st, 2020
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him – his name is the Lord. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing, but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. (Psalm 68:4-6) I want you to take a second and think about the Leaning Tower of ...  Read More

by Ministry Support on June 20th, 2020

(Hebrews 11:8) While it’s true that there might not be just one model of fatherhood, there is one ministry all fathers should have in common, and that is to be a father of faith. Abraham’s life shows and demonstrates that faith is fundamental an...  Read More

A Father’s Presence
by Ministry Support on June 19th, 2020
Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. (1 Timothy 5:8) We can learn a lot about fatherhood from Abraham. What made Abraham great is not that his life was perfect, but that through it all, he stayed with God. His life was not without blemish. He made mistakes. He disappointed God. He wasn’t alway...  Read More

Father Abraham
by Ministry Support on June 18th, 2020
I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me. (Genesis 22:17-18) If you grew up in church, one of the first songs you learned is a song entitled “Father Abraham.” I...  Read More

Honor Your Father
by Ministry Support on June 16th, 2020
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. (Exodus 20:12) In her powerful text “The Will To Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love,” Bell books writes of her father. She says, “Growing up, I knew my father as the strong man who did not talk, who did not show feelings, who did not give time or attention. He was a provider, the protector, th...  Read More
