What must I do – Mark 10:17b
We bless the Lord for another opportunity to celebrate 2024 Father Sunday. The topic of our Father’s Sunday says “What must I do...” This topic is apt in this challenging times because no one can claim to be custodian of all knowledge, we learn and grow daily in all facets of life and endeavors. What must I do is the gate way to gaining knowledge when it comes from an inquisitive, humble and teachable heart because knowledge is power.
The greatest of all is what must I do to be saved. In Act 2vs 37 7 38, when Peter’s audience heard the gospel they were cut to the heart and began to ask what shall we do to be saved. Peter responded, repent and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

What must I do to be a healthy Father
The father is the head of the family and the main beard winner of the family, he provided moral, spiritual guide and direction in the family, so his mental, physical and financial condition is so important for him to function (effectively). In this difficulty times, he needs to cast his cares upon the Lord, be anxious for nothing but in all things through prayers, supplication and thanksgiving surrender his burdens to God. God will always make a way where there seems to be no way. Have an altar, where you receive instructions from God and a place of protection for you and your family.
The father should endeavor to have a job in-order to maintain his respect and be able to provide the needs of the family. It is also important to engage in an exercise programs to keep the body strong and healthy.

What must I do to raise a RESPONSIBLE FAMILY
Raise a Christ-Centered family, be the priest, a role model-imitate Jesus, show love, care and direction to your wife and children, assist in shaping the life of the children by spending time with them teaching them hard work, the fear of god, how to understand and fulfil purpose in life, resilience, how to give to god, good moral values and etiquette etc to be the loving father, show concern and have a listening ear.

What must I do to SERVE GOD
It is important to use all our divine endowment to serve God, our Talent, Time and Treasure. We need to show commitment to things of god by playing a leading role in God’s service and also engage our wife and children in the same, for we must give account to god at the end of our lives.
Always exemplifying Christ-like humility in service, exhibiting godliness, righteousness, holiness, accountability, faithfulness in all we do, being a willing soul winner for Christ wherever we are.

Once again, Happy Father’s Sunday. Congratulations to all fathers in Jesus Name.
