With a grateful heart, we praise the Lord Jesus for bringing us into this family and giving us a godly heritage through Dad. Dad is a first-generation Christian, and about thirty-seven years ago, he surrendered his life to the Lord Jesus. Dad’s life is a beautiful testimony of a man dedicated to following the Lord.
Appropriately, Paul says in 1 Timothy 5:17: “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” Truly, this is Dad.
Sometimes we marvel at the wisdom the Lord gives parents, and the grace to walk through parenthood. Dad and Mom have fulfilled this role well. They have faithfully nurtured and raised us in the way of the Lord.
To the fathers who weren’t raised in a Christian home, there’s hope. Take courage from our own dad’s example. You can raise a family who is sold out to Jesus.
Thank you, Dad, for everything. We love you. Happy Father’s Day. And a Happy Father’s Day to Nathan and Christopher too!
Sarah, Joseph, John, Anna, Jesse, and Mary
