We're thinking this morning about Fatherhood! And from Ephesians 6 .. I want to show you how Fatherhood is for real men! Men .. it helps when we follow directions.

What's the word you say when you hit the golf ball bad?" Let me tell you something men: Fatherhood is for real men! Men that love God! Men that love the things of God! Men that love their wife! In fact .. the greatest thing a Father can do for his children is to love their mother!
God wants our children growing up in homes where their Father loves their Mother and their Mother loves their Father and both Father and Mother love God! And Fathers ... you are the key! If things are not right in your home .. chances are it's because you're not right!

And God wants you to author a home where Jesus is Lord ... where love and forgiveness prevails .. where the word of God is practiced ... and godliness is modeled! That's the kind of home God blesses with blessings!
Well on this Father's Day Sunday from Ephesians 6 .. I want to show you how
