Father’s Day


A Faithful Response

Matthew 9:35-38


Synopsis: Today is Father’s Day and that is reason enough to preach about the need for “A Faithful Response.”  Today we gave all the men in the church a multiple purpose pen.  The functions of the pen serve as a reminder they need to be on the “level” with those around them and “measure” up to the standard of faith.  They need to tighten up where they are to lacks in their demeaner and loosen up their control as they give their life and concerns over to God.  Then they will be ready to make their mark on others.

It’s not just a man thing.  All of us need to LOOK around and see the needs of others; LISTEN to the cries of others hurting as well as the voice of the Spirit of Christ calling us into action; and we need to INVESTIGATE the ways and means we can respond.  We start that process by the simple PRAYER: “What can I do?”  Then we PREPARE to do what you can and PARTICIPATE: Do what you can.

Something to think about: If you look around and see something that needs to be done, then maybe you are the one to get it done.
