Today's Scripture Guidance

Ephesians 6:4

"And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."


In today's Scripture..., Paul is giving instruction to Believers for Christian households.  He has already spoken to husbands, wives, and children.  The Word now says..., "And you, fathers."  Amen.  The Word continues with..., "do not provoke your children to wrath."  Hallelujah!  And finally the Word says..., "but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."  Glory to God!  Hallelujah..., Amen!

Today..., the Scripture is speaking specifically to Fathers.  To Daddy!  The Word has very direct guidance, that is still the guidance for fathers today!  The Word is very clear who this message is for.  The Word says..., "And you, fathers."  Amen.  The Word is speaking to fathers!  Not Father God..., father man!  If you are a father..., the Word says you have expectations from God!  And you, father!  You who are called Daddy!  This Word is speaking to you!  Amen!

Today..., the Scripture says to all fathers..., "And you, father..., "do not provoke your children to wrath."   Hallelujah!  Do not provoke your children to wrath.  Do not do things that drive your children to anger..., just to provoke them.  Just to be mean to them!  Do not act unreasonably with them.  Yes you are Daddy..., and yes you have control over them..., but do not use that control to treat them harshly just because you can!  The Word is guiding fathers to show love to their children.  To have patience with their children.  Being mean to them and withholding love will provoke them to wrath..., to sin!  Love begets love..., while evil begets evil!!!  Fathers..., if you are mean to your children..., they will learn to be mean to someone else!  Meanness provokes your children to wrath!  The Word of God says to you Father..., do not provoke your children to wrath!  Listen fathers!  Listen to the Word of God!  Hallelujah!

Today..., the Scripture has guidance specifically for fathers.  The Word first tells fathers what not to do...do not provoke your children to wrath. Amen.  But the Word of God also tells fathers what to do...,   "but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."  Glory to God!  That is what God expects a father to do..., bring their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord!  Listen fathers!  Listen to the Word of God!  Hallelujah..., Amen! 

Today..., the Word of God is speaking to fathers!  The reason the Word is speaking directly to fathers..., is because today there are too many fathers who do not take on the responsibility of bringing their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord!  Too many fathers who think that it is someone else job to train their children in the ways of Jesus.  Too many fathers who are not doing what the Word of God says a father should do.  Bring their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  Too many fathers!!!  Look at your own church..., many fathers are absent from church service.  Too many fathers are absent from serving in the church.  Too many fathers are allowing the mothers to take the lead in training their children to know Jesus!  Too many fathers are not doing the job that God has given fathers to do!  Too many!  The Word is challenging fathers today..., specifically fathers!!!  Amen!

Today..., The Word of God is speaking to fathers!  Being a father is a tough job.  Provider..., yes!  Protector..., yes!  Financial Manager of the family..., yes!  Yes..., there are many roles for a father.  And sometimes it gets tough to be all the things that a father has to be in this world.  Real tough sometimes!!  God knows this.  Yet, God calls on the father to be the leader in the household.  And God is calling on fathers today.  The Word says for fathers to bring their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord.  God is calling on fathers today!  There is no greater joy for any father who believes in Jesus..., than to see their child walking in the truth of Jesus.  Amen.  Bring your child to Jesus!  Glory!

Today... the Word of God is speaking to fathers!  "And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."  Today..., be the father that God has called you to be!  Glory to God!  You are a father!!!  Bring your child to Jesus!!!  Glory Hallelujah!!!  Amen!

YOU ARE A CHILD OF CHRIST!!!
