Fathers play a powerful role in the lives of their children and in the strength and health of a church. One startling bit of research conducted by the Christian Business Men’s Committee found the following: when the father is an active believer, there is about a seventy-five percent likelihood that the children will also become active believers. But if only the mother is a believer, this likelihood is dramatically reduced to fifteen percent.
That is a pretty heavy responsibility for a father to live up to! Thankfully, men (and women) also have the example of Christ to look to and point their children to. In this sermon, we will turn to God’s Word for wisdom and guidance on how we as men, and the church, we can be like Christ; Walk like, talk like, even think like Him.
