problems when a home is fatherless

Notes & Transcripts

“Jesus was not gods backup plan. his coming was always gods perfect plan of redemption for fallen, flawed, sin-sick man. before man can be fully redeemed, however, he must fully recognize the terrible predicament he is in. he must admit his rotten nature and come to the grips with his need for forgiveness”.

statistics:
tonight about 40% of american children will go to sleep in homes which there fathers do not live.
the epidemic of fatherlessness is one of the most harmful issues in the maturation of men.
maturation: the process of becoming mature.
10 years ago a child could expect to grow up with his father. today a child can reasonably expect not to.
before they reach the age of 18, more tha half our nations children are likely to spend a least a significant portion of their childhood living apart from their fathers.
fatherlessness is the leading cause of declining child well being in our society, to social problems, from crime, to adolescent pregnancy to child sexual abuse to domestic violence against women. despite its scale and social consequences, fatherlessness is a problem that is frequently ignored and denied.
1: talk about God and jesus being the perfect father son example.
john 5
John 5:19–20 NIV
Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.
John 5:30 NIV
By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
john 5
when a key piece of god intentional design was created for is missing a man will search for a replacement. drugs, gangs, worldy acts. all do the fatherlessness!
they develop habits, judge one anothers manhood and turn to various abuse all to cover up what is really missing. OUR FATHERS.
LOOK AT WHAT HAS CHANGED IN JUST 10 YEARS. IF MAN DOES NOT GET BACK TO GOD AND BEING THE FATHER GOD DESIGNED. IT WILL PUSH FATHERHOOD TO BORDERS OF DISINTEGRATION. meaning a deliberate killing of a large group of people.
MAN HODD DEVELOPMENT:
Proverbs 22:15 NIV
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away.
Proverbs 13:24 NIV
Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.
Genesis 37:2 NIV
This is the account of Jacob’s family line. Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.
folly: lake of good sense/foolishness
god is the perfect father and because of Jesus there is hope!
conclusion:
because jesus new God as his father, he knew exactly what his life and mission were about. conversely, without the fatherhood of God driving our manhood, we become mad scientist as we destructively experiment with those in our charge. but because of Jesus there is hope.
Genesis 37:2 NIV
This is the account of Jacob’s family line. Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.
