I am honored to lead the Resources Division at LifeWay and serve with a team of leaders who are passionate to serve the Church in Her mission of making disciples. Each Wednesday, I share the heart behind one of the resources our team has developed and give an opportunity for you to register to win a free copy of the resource. This week’s resource is 33 The Series Vol. 6: A Man and His Fatherhood Leader Kit.
In his classic work Knowing God, J. I. Packer opened the chapter on “Sons of God” with these great words: “What is a Christian? The question can be answered in many ways, but the richest answer I know is that a Christian is one who has God as Father.”
Packer also wrote, “You sum up the whole of New Testament religion if you describe it as the knowledge of God as one’s holy Father. If you want to judge how well a person understands Christianity, find out how much he makes of the thought of being God’s child, and having God as his Father.”
Because God invites us to relate to Him as our holy and loving Heavenly Father, the role of an earthly father is especially critical. As fathers, we give our children their first glimpse into viewing God as Father. While we will always fall woefully short of His perfection, our lives should be a reflection of His love, wisdom, and care for our children.
For this reason, living our faith in front of our kids is absolutely essential. D. L. Moody said, “A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian…and most of all, his family ought to know.” The example we set as fathers is incredibly important.
That’s why I’m so excited about 33 The Series Vol. 6: A Man and His Fatherhood. I believe our families, churches, and communities are in need of more godly dads—dads who, in their brokenness, are willing to enter the choppy waters of learning to lead and love their kids well. This final volume of 33 The Series will help dads begin to think strategically about fatherhood. A Man and His Fatherhood provides insights and biblical truth that can carry you through the confusion and dark moments of fatherhood and also energize you for its high points and powerful moments.
A Man and His Fatherhood is the final volume of the wildly popular 33 The Series. Each of the 6 sessions in this study includes 30 minutes of compelling video teaching from our racially and generationally diverse teaching team along with engaging group and personal Bible study. As men dig into Scripture, they will be led to recognize the important and influential role of fatherhood and grace-based parenting. A Man and His Fatherhood will equip dads with the important distinctions of raising sons and daughters uniquely as we prepare to launch them into the world.
Today, I’m giving away 2 copies of the Leader Kit for 33 The Series Vol 6: A Man and His Fatherhood. Register to win here or in the form below by the end of the day today (January 20, 2016).
