My purpose for beginning this blog is because I do not see a lot of content on line written by Christians like me. I see a lot of stuff about the super Churchy Christian. This Christian is the type that I sort of grew up around and never really fit in with. Nonetheless I am a Christian a believer of God who wants to follow Christ and help other fathers do the same thing.
I have a background in ministry I have been a minister for the last 14 years of my life. I grew up in the church and what I have really noticed is the lack of Fathers in the Church. That is something that I desire to change. Granted being a Christian in today’s society is not always deemed cool or the thing to do but being a father to your children or the children around you is a huge part of the commission that God has giving us.
My thought about life and ministry is that we should do it the way that Jesus did it. One of my favorite verses in the Bible comes from John 1:14 it reads “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth. This verse is simple in explanation to me. It means that Jesus became man and dwelt among the people of God. Once they dwelt together they received his glory. The only way that we as fathers can truly show our families who God is is by dwelling with them, spending time with them. Being intentional about that relationship. Not only because you want your family to believe but because you desire for your family to love you.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone that begins to read this blog. Leave me some Comments and ask me some questions and I will be sure to answer them with scripture and love.
Yours in Christ,
The Christian Dad
