Just Do It

This week was quite a hectic one for me.  As a parent I find myself not only trying to keep track of my social calendar but also my children’s calendars.  Today, my wife had an appointment at with her chiropractor.  After a day of running the girls around, I took this as an opportunity to get away with my wife, even if it was for only an hour, and had our oldest daughter stay home with her younger sister.

It felt nice sitting and talking with my wife in the waiting area but soon she was called into the patient area, leaving me alone to my thoughts.   So I decided to use this time to prepare for an up coming sermon I’m giving on Ephesians 6 in a couple of weeks.

Ephesians 6:1-4
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger,but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

DO THE RIGHT THING
As I was reading these verses, the thought of slogans began to enter my mind.  The first one that came to my mind was“DO THE RIGHT THING.”  From there, my mind went to the Nike slogan, JUST DO IT.”

A FATHER’S ROLE

Over the past year, my ministry work has grown exponentially!  Praise be to God!  But it has been tough to juggle everything which is why my weekly posts haven’t been coming weekly, or even monthly!  But God has reminded me that people are blessed by Wade in the Word and I am committed to posting much more frequently.  In fact, I have several posts in the wings waiting to be released!
Happy belated Father’s Day!
A ROLE OF A FATHER
The role of a father is a huge responsibility that should never be taken for granted or entered into lightly. Fatherhood is a position of great honor.  Fathers are to take on the roles of IMG_0658being the provider, protector and guider.  But in today’s society, these three things are seldom taught or seen in the family unit.  The husband’s and wife’s roles are often blurred due to divorce, children born out of wedlock, and lets not forget today’s hot topic, which i’ll call gender identity crisis.  The only reason I am mentioning these is to point out that men who are not responsible as men will not be responsible as fathers either.

WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT GOOD FRIDAY?


THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY

I woke us about 3:30 am Wednesday morning and as I laid there in bed I thought to myself that the celebration of Easter is coming.  Then the words Good Friday entered my mind.  So I got up and looked up on my phone “What’s so good about Good Friday?”  There were several articles talking about Good Friday, but only one really stuck out to me.

As I am writing this I’m still thinking, “What’s so good about Good Friday?”  Everything!  As dark as that day was, knowing  that we crucified an innocent man Jesus the Messiah in the place of a criminal named Barabbas,  Good Friday was the brightest day on earth for all of mankind.  Jesus’ death opened the gates to paradise once again to those who would believe on the name of Jesus the Son of God.  By one man’s sin, Adam, sin entered into the world and by one man’s act of righteousness sin is forgiven.

Romans 5:17-19
17 Since by the one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.

18 So then, as through one trespass there is condemnation for everyone, so also through one righteous act there is life-giving justification for everyone. 19 For just as through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so also through the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.
