Have you heard the saying “Who the Son sets free is free indeed“? As a result, it means you have been given the opportunity to live a life of freedom. Furthermore, are you ready to answer the call and embrace this freedom? For example, perhaps today is the day you decide to receive the call and live a life filled with mercy and grace. Nevertheless, are you feeling weighed down by burdens and searching for a way to find relief and live in freedom? Therefore, if you are feeling sick and tired of being sick and tired, turn to God and accept His gift of freedom.
Cast your cares on God because He cares for you! Choose to receive and live your life in the freedom God offers you through Jesus!
What will you do with the call to freedom?
Firstly, let’s be the dads who receive and accept the gift of freedom from God! Secondly, let’s be the dads who receive it and don’t abuse or reject it by living sinful, worldly, and selfish lives! Finally, let’s be the dads who use our freedom to serve and seek the best for one another in love!
So how can we be the dads God created, planned and purposed for us to be by applying today’s verse of the day?
Apply Galatians 5:13 to be the dads sharing freedom in order to accomplish God’s plans, purposes, and will for us to be for our wives, kids, and world:
- Embrace your freedom responsibly: Understand that as a father, you have been called to freedom in Christ. Recognize that this freedom is not to be used as an excuse for selfish behavior or indulgence but rather as an opportunity to serve and love others.
- Prioritize your family: Make your wife and children a priority in your life. Invest time and effort in building strong relationships with them. Show them love, support, and encouragement.
- Lead by example: Demonstrate godly character and integrity in your actions, words, and decisions. Be a positive role model for your children, teaching them the values of honesty, humility, forgiveness, and respect.
- Serve your family: Actively seek opportunities to serve your wife and children selflessly. Take care of their needs, help with household chores, and be willing to sacrifice your own desires for their well-being.
- Foster open communication: Create an environment where your family feels comfortable expressing their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. Be a good listener and respond with empathy and understanding.
- Encourage spiritual growth: Nourish the spiritual development of your family by leading regular times of prayer, Bible study, and worship. Guide your children in their understanding of God’s Word and help them establish a personal relationship with Jesus.
- Be involved in your children’s lives: Take an active interest in your children’s activities, hobbies, and education. Attend their events, spend quality time with them, and provide guidance and support as they navigate life’s challenges.
- Practice forgiveness: Model forgiveness and teach your children the importance of forgiveness in relationships. Seek forgiveness when you make mistakes and extend grace to your family members when they fall short.
- Engage in acts of service in your community: Extend your generosity and love beyond your immediate family by engaging in acts of service in your community. Look for opportunities to help those in need and teach your children the value of giving back.
- Pray for your family: Commit to praying for your wife and children regularly. Lift them up to God, seeking His guidance, protection, and blessings upon their lives. Trust in His plans and purposes for your family.
Step into and receive God’s freedom!
By applying these principles, you can embrace the freedom you have been given in Christ and create an environment where your family flourishes, reflecting God’s love and fulfilling His plans for your role as a husband, father, and influence in the world.
