THE MYSTERY OF HIS FATHERHOOD.
All it takes to be a biological father may be a sperm donor but fatherhood is a state or an office. With a determined picture of what he want for a son, take the child through the process and experiences that has a predetermined outcome. Today the family system is failing and values depleting because may a father have swap roles as fathers with the office of fatherhood for sperm donors.
I will like us to take some lessons from our heavenly father, that we may understand fatherhood that we may fill the earth with sons of God.
As we sturdy further, it is important to note:
1. Fatherhood is an office with great responsibilities.
2. Fatherhood has the responsibility of converting child to sons.
3. putting together all and experiences that will bring out a god out of a child(son)
The Father has never relegated His responsibilities to any other and has waited for years after the fall of man to have man restored that He fulfill His obligations.
JESUS came that we can have our access back to the father. john 14:6
note . The father
The Father has a big picture which is to see the sons be like Him. Therefore it is God’s desire to have His sons dominate & subdue the earth.
so this process is the process of taking us from a sensory led man to a spirit led man .Rom 8: 14.
fatherhood is a process of;
1. transferring the power of the father to the son
2. making the son the express image of the Father.
3. delegating authority and responsibility from Father to son
The Son has some responsibilities;
1. to reflect the image of the father.
2. depend on the Father.
3. as men sees the glory of God through His son they will come to God.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works , and glorify your Father which is in heaven . pro 4:18. isiah 58:8, isiah 60:1-3
Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect , even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The Father keeps His eye on the son
( story of d moon)
We become sons when we are full with d knowledge of GOD.
how can we be full?
by knowing d love of Christ.
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named ,
16 That he would grant you , according to the riches of his glory , to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man ;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith ; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth , and length , and depth , and height ;
19 And to know the love of Christ , which passeth knowledge , that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God
