Happy Father’s Day to all of the sons of this age that submit to God’s design of you as a male who alone of mankind has seed from your body to initiate the existence of new male or female human beings! While as His creature, a Christian and aspiring strong man of God in the image of Jesus Christ you may have other interests, you understand God did not create you to fulfill any ambitions first, but to do His will in the prime roles He designed you for as a husband to your female wife and father to the children you create together. Indeed, no male, no children; no female, no children; male and female in the bond of holy marriage, children (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:7, 18-25, 3:20, 4:1-2, 5:1-4)!
I continue to stand in awe of God Almighty and wise who could have raised up man in number as the grains of sand on earth or stars of the universe at once from the dust. Instead, He purposely chose to create one man, from him take out a woman and through their marital relationship and pleasure of sexual intimacy He designed them to share, achieve the same numerical ends briefly over time. Though fathers in their procreation role have it the easiest, their responsibilities are by no means easy. We are held accountable by God the Father in His image and likeness to lead, teach provide for and protect our wives and children--responsibilities He helps us with if we seek Him in our first role as His sons!
Disobedience to God and His punishment negatively impacted, made difficult and very challenging all of our responsibilities before Him and to our families requiring His help to be done even close to well (Genesis 2:15-17, 3:6-12, 17-19). Historically, men have done best at providing and protecting while coming up very short in spiritual leadership and teaching since we not only do these with words, but deeds. Sin in us has been our constant foil. Yet, God be praised and to Him be all the glory for the marvel of fathers as He designed and His willingness to help His fallen elect leaders. How sad in these latter days evil has convinced many fathers they have nothing but biological value.
Nevertheless, in a biblical worldview, males as fathers who have already fulfilled God’s will to responsibly beget children in marriage, spiritually led, taught, provided for and protected their families or will, superbly glorify Him in the earth and bless all mankind as did Christ Jesus (John 17:4). Thank you!
