Many dads struggle with the question of, “Will I measure up?” It’s the fear that they will fail to be the kind of father they should be — or need to be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sadly, as guys, we often skip the instruction manual, thinking we will just figure it out along the way. Yet, when things go wrong, it’s always nice to have that manual to go back to — isn’t it? Well, there IS a manual for Iife (the Bible) and we certainly shouldn’t skip it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for the dads looking for a little fathering advice, take a look at Colossians 3:21: “Fathers, don’t provoke our children, instead bring the. Up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Don’t provoke your children”— That means don’t make unrealistic demands. Don’t crush their spirit by being aloof or overly strict. Every child has a fragile psyche that needs to be built up, not torn down.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Bring them up in discipline” — Discipline should be fair and consistent. They need to know the boundaries and know there are negative consequences if ignored. This provides children with security and helps them know they are loved.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“... and the instruction of the Lord.” Discipline precedes instruction. But discipline without instruction exasperates children. They need Dad to teach them right from wrong — in love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s certainly not easy being a good father or father figure, but we have a great model in our Heavenly Father, revealed to us through Jesus Christ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Would you try to make a couple extra bucks and stay late in the office? Would you spend time with family or express thanks to those who’ve helped you along the way? Would you try to work things out between you and God?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of us have a tendency to prioritize the temporal and material at the neglect of the eternal and relational. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But none of us know the number of days God has planned for us. So, don’t put off until tomorrow the really important things you can do today - like getting right with God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God became a man in the person of Jesus to show us how. Start there, and show your family how much you love them. Surprise them by occasionally coming home early. Tell them you love them. Plan fun things to do with them. Help someone you care about — someone who needs you at the office, in the neighborhood, or maybe someone who simply needs a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may not be your last day here on earth, but it might just become a great day for you and those you care about.How do you find the possibility of freedom and peace in a world where there seems to be no rest? The idea that the pace of life seems to continually increase stress and worry is a universal concept. There seems to be no end to the demands on our time and energy. Are you tired of the constant busyness that seems to consume our lives? I know I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s a solution. It isn’t one that offers escape from the demands of life, but one that guarantees rest in the midst of the rat race and the fast pace of life. Jesus says, “Come to me if you are tired and burdened. I’ll make your load lighter, and help you carry your burden.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus offers rest amidst the stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Christ doesn’t always remove us from life’s demanding situations. Instead, He asks us to let HIM show us how to handle life’s demands. Jesus wants us to face each day and each challenge with HIM. Walk with Christ daily and trust Him for guidance and wisdom to handle whatever comes next. In this way, you’ll finally experience true rest amidst the stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many questions probably come to mind such as: WHY AM I HERE? IS JESUS ACTUALLY GOD? IS THERE REALLY A DEVIL? However, the most common question asked is often, “WHY IS THERE SO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remembering the countless wars and terrorist attacks through the years, the injustice and natural disasters that cause so much pain and heartache — it’s easy to find ourselves questioning God’s character or asking why? “If God is all powerful and all knowing, then why doesn’t He prevent bad things from happening? If H can’t do anything about it, then He isn’t much of a God is He?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God gets blamed for a lot of man’s evil, when God has given man a free will, ironically, the more victimized people are by man’s evil, the more they tend to blame God. Yet, we’re not created as computers programmed to do good or evil. Like God, we can make choices.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, why does an all loving and all powerful God allow suffering and evil? No answer is adequate. God’s main concern is that in the midst of our heartbreak and confusion, that we trust God to bring good from the bad. He did it when mankind murdered His innocent Son. He can do it with every tragedy we face, both big and small. We need only to trust Him.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why? Paul was showing interest in Greek culture. He showed appreciation for Greek culture. It showed the. That he was well read. Paul was earning the right to be heard by a group of people who might have easily dismissed him as an irrelevant and ignorant foreigner. Instead, they were curious to know more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what can we learn from how Paul connects with the intellectual elite?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) FIND COMMON GROUND. Paul quoted a Greek poet and began his conversation by discussing one of the many idols the Greeks worshiped (Acts 17:22-28). Rather than condemning from the start, Paul found common ground and won the right to be heard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) IDENTIFY A FELT NEED. Why did the ancient Greeks worship so many different idols, gods? They were searching for something to believe in — they were searching for God even though they didn’t know who He was. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We do the same thing. We search for value, purpose, and identity in money, career, success or relationships — our modern day idols. But God is the only one who fully satisfy this search.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) BE BOLD. Paul didn’t tip-toe around the truth. Without quoting a single verse (the Greeks didn’t know the Bible), everything Paul shared came from God’s Word. In the end, he challenged them to repent — to turn away from their old ways of thinking and living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With whom will you share? Don’t just dismiss a person because of their differences. Follow Paul’s example and take the time to find some common ground. Maybe then you’ll earn the right to be heard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In Acts chapter 8, we read about a huge movement of people coming to faith. The encounter that stands out in Philip’s story isn’t the huge crowds and healings, but rather the moment Philip responded to the nudge of the Holy Spirit and went for a walk down w long, desert road. It was there that he met an influential Ethiopian man reading the book of Isaiah. Before long, Philip was baptizing him in faith — right alongside the road.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s an incredible story of recognizing and trusting the Holy Spirit, even when it doesn’t make sense. And for followers of Jesus, there’s a few things we can learn from Philip in how WE share our faith with others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Walk with God and you’ll be led by the Spirit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Philip as totally sold out for God. He was walking and living in the center of God’s will.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Be sensitive to the movements of God.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t let busyness cause you to miss opportunities to speak into another person’s life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) The more Scripture you know, the better equipped you’ll be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Philip recognized the scripture the man was reading (Isaiah 53) and was therefore able to explain the meaning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4) After sharing the Gospel, ASK if he / she wants to believe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5) The Gospel is for everyone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t forget that Jesus came for for the Jew, Gentile, Muslim, Atheist...everyone.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
6) Baptism testifies of our faith. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Bi lie teaches that Baptism follows a decision of faith.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When God calls you to move, to act, or to share the truth of Jesus in your life — will you? Philip did and a man’s life was changed for eternity.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As he traveled and shared the story of Jesus Christ, people responded. Suddenly, right in the middle of great crowds coming to Christ, God asked Philip to leave and take a trip along a 60 mile desert road between Jerusalem and Gaza. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I were Philip, it would have been easy to question God. How could he leave NOW with so much happening? Nobody lives in the desert. But Philip trusted God and left.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sure enough, he ran into a very influential Ethiopian man reading from the book of Isaiah. Not only that,  yet this. A. Was reading the prophesy of Jesus’ death on the cross written more than 700 years before Christ (Isaiah 53). Talk about a God-orchestrated meeting! Feeling prompted by the Holy Spirit, Philip walked over to the man and began a conversation that would lead him to Christ. That man became the first African believer. Talk about significant; he even became the first one to take the gospel to a whole continent!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s rare to stumble into a situation when someone is so ready to accept the Gospel, yet the question we have to ask ourselves is: Are ew paying attention? Will we recognize the nudge of the Holy Spirit to move, to act, and to share? Or are we too focused on our individual lives, our schedule and our comfort? Follow Philip’s example — of bold faith and obedience, no matter where the Holy Spirit leads.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In fact. A new study from the University of Buffalo has shown that compared to egotistical bosses, humble bosses...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) ...lead by example,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) ...admit their mistakes, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) ...recognize their followers’ strengths.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s a pretty good start, I’d say.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Good leaders also make things happen. They bring about change. They communicate clearly their vision and goals. They have a clear direction and ability to motivate others to join them. Real leaders also delegate. They trust in others to get the job done. Micro-managers constantly destroy the morale of those they are called to lead.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are all traits of leadership... BUT what separates GOOD leaders from GREAT leaders? I believe the answer is courage. It’s the courage to do what’s right, to do what needs to be done, especially when the heat is on and people are grumbling and the times are hard. Great leaders have the courage to lead others to carry out their vision no matter what the cost. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where does this kind of courage come from? This courage can be found in the Lord. Leaders, God’s Word says, “Be strong and courageous.” Strength and courage - key factors to all great leadership.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Navigating that pathway from the bed to the door in the dark can be more than a little tricky: bumping into walls or tripping over hidden obstacles along the way. But turn on the lights and suddenly the pathway becomes clear.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wandering blindly through the darkness is how many people approach life. They’re trying to navigate their way through darkness — spiritual darkness. Unsurprisingly, they often stumble, trip and fall — subjecting themselves to a lot of self-inflicted and unnecessary pain along the way. Why? Because they think they ca just FEEL their way around — in the dark.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But Jesus tells us that HE is the LIGHT of the world, which means that He is ENLIGHTENMENT of God and life for all mankind. Without Him, we remain stuck trying to figure this life out on our own; we’re stuck wandering around in spiritual darkness. And as long as we continue to try things our own way, we will continue to stumble and fall.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Isn’t it time for some of you to turn on the light and really see God? If you’re looking for some clarity and direction navigating this life, turn to Jesus. Let Him be the light in your life. You’ll find a lot more clarity in where your headed — I guarantee it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having watched my mother exchange her earthly home for her heavenly home, I’m even more keenly aware of this truth: the toughest stage of life is parenting our parents. It’s a role-reversal both parent and child would rather avoid. But the Bible clearly teaches us to honor our parents, and that means caring for them when they are old. So, let me suggest a few thoughts: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) MAKE THE TIME. The greatest gift you can give your aging parents to is time. So, if physical distance is great, take time to call or write on a regular basis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) BE PRAYERFUL & SENSITIVE. When parents can no longer care for themselves or their home, be sensitive when helping them think about where they will live - be it in their own home with help, a retirement center, nursing home, or even with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) BE MOTIVATED BY LOVE NOT GUILT. As you face these tough decisions, be motivated by love, not guilt. Do what THEY need most, not what YOU want most.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honoring our parents sometimes means parenting our parents. Remember, we rep what we sow. One day we hope that our own children will have learned from our example.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An Update From Bryant !

 

Many who are part of our Right From The Heart
family may not know that I have been the Senior
Pastor of Johnson Ferry Church in Marietta,
Georgia, for the last 37 years. A few months ago,
I felt the Lord leading me to begin the search
process for my successor, which as I’m sure you
can imagine, wasn’t an easy decision to make!
But, it was clear to me that God was the source
of this change, so the church is in the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. Of course, we don’t know how
long this process will take, but we are sure that God’s timing is perfect.

“So,” you ask, “what happens to Right From The
Heart after you step down from pastoring the
church?” Well, I can assure you of one thing:

I STILL PLAN TO LEAD RIGHT FROM THE HEART!

I’m excited that I will have more time to focus
on our mission to “Reach and disciple people
for Jesus Christ through the use of media.” God
has blessed this ministry in so many ways, and I
know that through your continued prayers, your
financial support, and our dedication to be good
stewards of what God has graciously allowed us
to do, we will be able to reach even more people
with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In addition, I will be adding new aspects to our
ministry at RFTH in leading Bible study tours to
Israel and Paul’s missionary journeys, as well
as mentoring younger pastors. I humbly ask for
your prayers for all of us at Right From The Heart
as this transition takes place. Thank you and
may God bless each of you!
