In this sermon we examine the spiritual parallels that exist between our spiritual Father and our human fathers. Human fathers should emulate their spiritual father and provide for the physical and spiritual needs of their families. The problems extant in the world’s social and moral structure can be largely attributed to the lack of fathers properly fulfilling their roles as the leader of the family. The essential spiritual roles of fathers are noted and a challenge to maintain and restore godly leadership in the family are presented.
