The Heart of the Father

Sunday June 17, 2012

Offering message: Ps. 66:12 and Is. 43:2 refer to going through the fire and the water, but God brings us out to a wealthy place. We all face problems, but what’s important is the person’s heart and what the person does under the pressure. Pastor Dale defined “landmark”. Sermon message: God sets the solitary in families (Ps. 68:5-6). God wants you rooted in a church family. He is a Father to the fatherless. Malachi says that the hearts of the fathers will be turned to the children and the children’s hearts to the fathers. Children, you may need to repent to your fathers. Learn from your father and look for a spiritual father. Fathers, pass the spiritual “baton” or “mantle” to your children or other youth and be the spiritual head. What Elijah didn’t do, Elisha completed. Invest in the next generation. Be an example (2 Tim. 4:12- 5:2). Your attitude allows someone to invest in you. The younger generation must receive from the former generation. (Matt. 26:53)
