Father’s day is always a special day for us at the Bible Baptist Church. This year was “extra” special as a tribute was presented by the young people for the fathers. The tribute was simply entitled, “A Spiritual Father”.

I had the privilege of bringing the message from Joshua 24:14-15 on the characteristics of a spiritual father. We took time honoring the Lord for giving us men who, in spite the difficulties and trials of this present world, are faithful in rearing up “generational warriors” who’ll take the truth of God’s Word and give to the next generation.

1. Knows God – A Heart for God
2. Knows His Precepts

B. Serves the Lord

C. To God Alone – “put away”

II. THE DIRECTION of a SPIRITUAL FATHER – V15a

III. THE DECISION of a SPIRITUAL FATHER – V15c
