Becoming A Super Dad (Father's Day 2018) (Matthew 5:43-48)Hilary Williams, 02/09/2018
Part of the Miscellaneous 2018 series, preached at a Pulpit Series service
Matt 5:43-48. Ps Hilary Williams encourages fathers - and all of us - to grow more like our heavenly Father. Jesus urges us to be perfect as He is, and shows us here and elsewhere that the Father is our ultimate model. However He also assures us that the burden of being better people can only be lifted with God's perfectly empowering grace.

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (ESV)
