Defining What It Means to Be a Father

Defining what it means to be a father is a challenge. In fact, it may be easier to describe what a father isn't, at least according to our culture. With so many fathers acting like sperm donors and not the connected, involved and loving men we need them to be, it is almost understandable why we have a hard time identifying the qualities of a father. So, when we see a man being a "dad", "father", "God fearing leader", "friend" and "teacher", let's encourage them. We rejoice that there are still good men that are great fathers! Happy Father's Day! (Ps 112:1-3; NASU) (Ps 128)

Are you a "safe" Christian?

Are you a "safe" Christian? Are you comfortable influencing those in your immediate circle and never daring to challenge yourself to do more? I dare you to think BIG. Have you ever considered asking God to help you accomplish something radically BIG for His Kingdom? You are gifted with talents, skills and passion. Imagine all that you do to change lives when you study, fellowship with other believers and prayer (Acts 2:42). Why not become a dangerously, "On Fire" kind of Christian that makes an impact in a different, new and innovative way? God can open doors and hearts in incredible ways, are you willing to be His arms and legs? Acts 2
