Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model – Day 4

Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model

I found a devotional that was a bit longer and that sounded powerful as a message so that it could help us learn and become the dads God created and purposed for us to be. So I chose “Just For Dads: Be A Positive Christian Role Model” because, over 21 days, we will get to read and learn about how to be a positive Christian role model for our family! Over 21 days, we will get to learn about topics like: “self-discipline, love, patience, and much more“! This devotional will not only help us be the dads but it will also help us “in our day-to-day life to show our children what it truly means to be a role model and follower of Christ in every sense“.

Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:

‘In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” ‘

Isaiah 6:1-8

Let’s be the dads who make time to hear from God! Let’s be the dads who find a reading plan, a devotional, or make a plan to make sure we spend time in God’s Word daily on our own! Let’s be the dads who aren’t just hearers of the Word but are also doers of the Word! God’s Word will meet us right where we are at!

Let’s be the dads who are living to bring glory to God! Let’s be the dads who allow Jesus into our hearts to create a new heart, a clean heart so that from the overflow of our hearts our mouths will speak with clean lips! Let’s be the dads whose lives have had the guilt taken away by Jesus and our sins atoned for by His sacrifice on the cross! Let’s be the dads who hear God speaking to us! Let’s be the dads who will answer God’s call on our lives! Let’s be the dads who will go where He sends us! Let’s be the dads who will respond like Isaiah and say “Here am I. Send me!” Let’s be the dads who will stand in the gap when there is a gap that is found!
