Jesus said, “The first commandment is ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.  And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  This is the first commandment.”

B. Dads need a relationship with their family.

1. Love their wife.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”

4. Affection

3. Love their parents.

Ephesians 6:2

“Honor your father and your mother…”

“Proven Character” means a tested character.

Proverbs 20:7

“The righteous man walks in his integrity, his children are blessed after him.”

A. The church is family.

B. The church is fellowship.

C. The church is like an army.

Ecclesiastes 4:9,10

“Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor.  For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.”

IV. Have Commitment: Put Your Cause for Christ before Comfort. – L- v.26,27

Fact: Ministry costs and it can be exhausting.

“…faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

V. Have Courage: Put Service before Security. – L- v.29,30
