“Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ I became your father through the Gospel.” I Corinthians 4:15
There are many people who know about Christ but don’t know Him.
What we need is not more spiritual teachers, but rather, more spiritual fathers. Being a spiritual teacher and being a spiritual father are two different things. One only takes responsibility for giving information but not for the development of that person as they process and work through that information. A Father takes responsibility for the process from birth to maturity. Teachers will come and go but a father is always a father to his sons and daughters. A teacher has a job. A father has a relationship. A teacher doesn’t have to feel anything. A father feels everything!
This is the investment God is calling us to make; to be fathers to sons and daughters of the Kingdom.
Who’s your Daddy?
Who are you a spiritual father to?
