Because our fathers, grandfathers, great grandfathers and many past generations of men have not understood their roles in life, we now live in a society of compromised husbands and fathers, who are also ignorant of the impact they have in everyday life. Most men are blissfully unaware that the unrest they see all around them is the direct result of the spiritually weak husbands and fathers in previous generations, as well as those in the present generation.
Marriages are cast aside when the going gets rough, because the value and purpose of marriage has never been taught to both husband and wife. Fatherless men roam the streets, fuming with anger, because they have little knowledge of who they are and who they’re supposed to be. Women reel in confusion because fathers have never taught them their value, nor loved them in the love of Christ. They cannot understand how a man is supposed to function, because their fathers were never taught how to function as a proper husband and father.
Men, it’s time to repent. It’s time to find out what the Lord’s idea of a man is all about. God is calling His men to study the character of Jesus, and then walk in the love and integrity of His life. Society is crying out for men to assume their true position. Marriages are in need of men who will fulfill their God-appointed roles. Sons and daughters need to live in an atmosphere of Christ’s kind of love, so they can see who Father God really is. This will help to break the curse of past family generations, which has produced confused men and women, who are incapable of thriving in a strong, godly, loving family. When we, as men, understand and walk in our roles in the power of the Holy Spirit, our wives and children will be free and encouraged to become all they can be in Christ and show Him to the rest of the world in their everyday lives. Isn’t that what we all want for them?
