This Sunday we continue the series Cage Fighters with a special Father’s day message, FROM DUDE TO DAD.
I always look forward to Father’s day @ PFA .
Here is the outline to the message notes:
THE CAGE OF RESPONSIBILITY
“What shall I do about my son?” – 1 Samuel 10:2 (niv)
FROM DUDE TO DAD
1. RESPONSIBLE IRRESPONSIBILITY.
Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”
60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”
– Luke 9:59-60
2. SUCCESSFUL FAILURES.
And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. – Genesis 1:4
3. MOMENTS OF CONCEPTION.
“What is it that you want ?“ – Nehemiah 2:4
Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
4. TIME TO QUIT PRAYING.
Well done, good and faithful servant – Matthew 25:23
5. SIGNS FOLLOW DECISIONS .
And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. – Mark 16:20
6. GET YOUR FEET WET.
And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.” – Joshua 3:9-23
7. BE THE BEST CUP BEARER YOU CAN BE
And it came to pass in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was before him, that I took the wine and gave it to the king. Now I had never been sad in his presence before. 2 Therefore the king said to me, “Why is your face sad, since you are not sick? This is nothing but sorrow of heart.”So I became dreadfully afraid, – Nehemiah 2:1-2
