FOCUS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS - DAILY DISCIPLINES FOUND IN THE ARMOR OF GOD - A 10-DAY BIBLE PLAN BY TIM FERRARA (FOUNDER OF DISCERNING DAD)

Focus on the Fundamentals – Day 8

Let’s be the dads who are encouragers! Let’s be the dads who share what God has done in and through our lives with our wives, kids, and others! Let’s be the dads who lead with love which we know cleans the house of fear! Let’s be the dads who are more interested in finishing strong than a great start! As our devotional is speaking to us, let’s focus on the fundamentals daily!

Let’s see what day 8 has to say about focusing on the fundamentals.


Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.’

Romans 6:23

‘And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death. ‘

Revelation 12:11

‘And have mercy on some, who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy but with fear, loathing even the clothing spotted and polluted by their shameless immoral freedom. ‘

Jude 1:22-23

How better a way to start off your day than in the Word of God! Starting with a source that never runs dry! Starting with a source that is never changing! Starting with a source that is a love letter from God!

Let’s be the dads who choose to freely receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus! Let’s be the dads who know that in our own strength, power, and influence we can’t make it and so celebrate and receive the gift of salvation through Jesus! Let’s be the dads who choose to receive the gift of grace from God, that’s right the gift that is the free and unmerited favor of God! Let’s be the dads who choose to be overcomers! Let’s be the dads who have received the gift of being an overcomer by receiving Jesus into our hearts and lives and by sharing what God is and has done in and through our lives with our wives, kids, and the world around us! Let’s be the dads who choose to live for God’s greater plan and purpose for our lives rather than allowing fear, worry, and doubt to rob us of His grace, blessings, protection, and promises of eternal life! Let’s be the dads who are willing to go the extra mile to be able to help others hear about and have the opportunity to receive Jesus into their lives! Let’s be the dads who are present to speak life and hope into the lives of those who are doubting! Let’s be the dads who are present and speaking life and hope into the lives of those who are dabbling in the dark side of things in order to pull them out of the fiery pit they are walking into. Let’s be the dads who are present and speaking life and hope into the lives of those who are living their lives in fear by showing mercy! Let’s be the dads who are God’s hands and arms reaching out and embracing the world that they too would come to know and trust and love God!
