INSTRUCTIONS FROM JAIRUS

MARK 5:21-24,

21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea. 22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.

24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

Today is Fathers day and I will speak to Fathers and those that are taking Fathers place in the home.

One of the name’s used to describe our God is Jehovah Shammah--THE GOD WHO IS THERE,

Many homes in American are suffering from the phantom father.

The father who is not there & even in some homes even when he is there, their not there.

Hundreds of men have fathered children, & simply walked away from the family—

Let me say fathering a child does not make a man a father.

To be a father carries with it great responsibilities.

A decade ago, the number of murders committed by teen was approx. 1000 a year, today it is 4000 a year.

Some would like to blame poverty, broken homes both physical & mental abuse--but one psychologist says “there are many that come form the same back grounds that are not committing acts of violence”—

Because of a lack of father figures in the Home-- in the past 30 years there have been:

550% increase in violent crime

400% increase in illegitimate births

200% increase in teen. pregnancies.

300% increase in teen suicide

More that 70% of all juveniles in state reform institutions come from fatherless homes.

The home doesn’t need a man in the house, it needs a father!

Jairus, was a religious man, a ruler of the synagogue, he was also a father--

Jarius was an elder of the synagogue-; his position made him one of the most prominent men of the congregation.

He was neither a teacher nor a preacher, but was responsible for the order of the synagogue service.The city manage so to speak.

We see a man who had a desperate need-

You will never become so powerful, so popular, you will never rise so high that problems, & troubles can not reach you.

This man’s little girl, the apple of his eye, was dying

1. SHE SAW HE WAS NOT ASHAMED TO SEEK JESUS:

He sought Jesus--he did not send his wife, or someone else.

When you are a father, you have the responsibilities of a father, given to by the heavenly father:

Paul tells us:

Ephesians 6:4 (AMP.)

FATHERS, DO NOT IRRITATE & PROVOKE YOUR CHILDREN TO ANGER [DO NOT EXASPERATE THEM TO RESENTMENT] BUT REAR THEM [TENDERLY] IN THE TRAINING & DISIPLINE & THE COUNCIL & ADMONITION OF THE LORD

It is the father’s responsibility to teach children about God, it is not the mothers; it is not the church-

Many mothers & churches have had to take on the responsibility, because the father refuses to do it:

*It is the Father that gives unto your children the upbringing that prepares them for living lives that are pleasing unto God.
