Thesis: To note how wonderful it is to have God as our Heavenly Father and to learn lessons

              from His perfect model of parenting.



(1)    Father’s Day – Greatest Father = God

(2)    Let us note 3 lessons that we may learn from Him:


I.                    God Provides for us:

A.     He knows us intimately (cf. Matt. 10.30 – even the # of hairs on our head).

B.     He is able to distinguish between our needs and our wants (cf. Matt. 6.25-34; Also, God answers prayers according to His will – 1 John 5.14).

C.     He sacrifices for our needs (cf. John 3.16).

II.                 God Disciplines us:

A.     Read Hebrews 12.6-11

B.     Remember Solomon’s advice – Prov. 22.6 – Train up a child in the way he should go; this sometimes involves punishment –

He who spares his rod hates his son,

But he who loves him disciplines him diligently. - Prov 13:24

III.               God Forgives us:

A.     2 Pet. 3.9 – longsuffering, now willing that any should perish, but all come to repentance

B.     He will remember our sins no more (Heb. 10.17) – forgiven and removed as far as the east is from the west (Ps. 103.12)


(1)    What a blessing to have God as our Heavenly Father
