Sermons about Father
Until we can see our Savior face to face, we look to our Heavenly Father for strength, hope and courage to live for Him.
The Gospel of John has more references and dialogue about God the Father than any other book in the Bible...far more. This message looks at some of the critical attributes of our Heavenly Father and how that can shape our experience as His children, as fathers and as children of earthly fathers.
Humanity was created in God's image. That means that we were made to resemble God in His attributes and represent Him in His creation. In fact, even our sexuality, that is, our "maleness" or "femaleness", says something about God. This is reinforced by the fact that the Scriptures speak of God using paternal (fatherly) images. So, when God wanted to describe His own provision and giving of good gifts, His discipline, compassion, and modeling, He compared these attributes to those reflected by a father. So, to all the fathers out there, you are a unique reflection of God's glory. That being the case, embrace and reflect God's image in you. You'll need God's help and you won't be perfect, but you can still point your children to their heavenly Father. (NOTE: this sermon began with a video [not recorded] that illustrated how some things are better with dads.)
Proverbs 29:18 has often been preached with a completely different slant than what the original language reveals. This verse has a powerful truth for our nation, our churches and our homes. The proclamation of the Word of God has a big impact on the moral fiber of each of these entities and the failure to proclaim the Word or water down its message results in a "looseness" in the lives of its members. Godly Fathers in the home can make a major difference in the lives of their children when they apply the truth contained in this Proverb.

This dynamic sermon by Pastor Ginger Medley focuses on the United Methodist symbol with the firey flame and the cross, based upon scriptures in the books of Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-3, Acts 4:29-31, and Joel @:28-29. Key Points: 1) In one Accord, in one place; 2) Suddenly; 3) An Experience with God; and 4) The Fantastic Four (Father, Son, Holy Ghost, and YOU!)
