Trinity Fathers Group
God, our Father, has blessed us in so many ways. As a husband and father, I often wake up ready to seize the day, but go to bed knowing I did not make the most of my time. The days are indeed evil. Did I love my wife as my own body? Did I train and instruct my children in the Lord? Did I hold captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ? These things are not always easy. The world seeks to distract us and take our eye off the prize. However, we are called to be ambassadors for Christ. We are commanded to always be ready to give reasons for why we have put our faith in Christ, and to have our feet ready to spread the gospel of peace. Our faith and our works are before the watching world and are a visible testament to those seeking freedom from sin and death.
Therefore, if anyone is interested, I want to propose a Trinity fathers’ group. My vision is to invite all Trinity fathers and grandfathers to participate in a biweekly group that focuses on using our gifts to train and equip each other. This iron sharpening iron concept can be done through Bible study and various resources that assist in tackling secular challenges. I have a graduate degree in Apologetics, but many of you also have degrees or training that can be leveraged to increase our confidence in the gospel. Whether you are young or old in the Lord, we can all benefit from building each other up to love our families and neighbors more. We can all grow in wisdom, knowledge and character – the essentials for ambassadors.
Brothers, I know how quickly the days pass. It can be difficult to work a 10 or 12 hour day, serve our family and relax for a few minutes before the day is over. Many of us sit on boards, volunteer at charities or coach little league teams. Some of us are also already engaged in church groups or other ministries. It may not be feasible for some of you to get involved in another group. Therefore, this will need to be flexible so that most will have the ability to participate on some level. If this type of group sounds appealing, or you have any questions, please email me by Jan. 14, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
