Father Day Message from Bruce Riley Ashford
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Bruce Riley Ashford thoughts here is what I spoke from Sunday for Father Day and added some of my thoughts to those attending the Harrah Assembly of God. Thank the Lord for Fathers for they are the ones who God choice to bring life into the womb of the girl they married to be blessed by God as life is ordained by God. So as you read this know I feel very strongly in agreement as a Father of four boys that. has been married in October 60 years. So marriage is between a women and a man, women with women can produce a child not can a man with a man it take two opposites to preform Gods miracles of life. That is what we need to understand, for as we abide in the vine we are going too all produce fruit that is good for all, not just a few. Blessing to all our fathers that are truly father this day!

One of the saddest trends in American life is the demotion of fatherhood to secondary status. While a mother’s love is rightly acknowledged as one of the strongest and most mysterious forces in the world, a father’s love is often treated as weaker and less significant. While mothers are rightly praised for their virtues, fathers tend to be the butt of jokes.
Think about it. If you were to form your opinion of fatherhood through the examples presented on television, you would think fathers are pathetic characters who play a relatively insignificant role and deserve to be the butts of endless jokes. About the best treatment fathers get is to play the role of a likeable dimwit (think Homer Simpson, or Phil Dunphy from "Modern Family"); other times they’re sex-obsessed derelicts (Charlie in "Two and a Half Men"); perhaps most often they’re simply mulish idiots (think Larry David in "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Peter Griffin from "Family Guy," or Frank from "Shameless"). There are some exceptions, but it is a good generalization: as a culture, we seem to want to roll our eyes at dad.
Even in the church the difference between Mother’s Day sermons and Father’s Day sermons can be amusing. On Mother’s Day, we appreciate the mothers and tell them how amazing they are, and rightly so. But on Father’s Day, we often poke fun at dads and tell them how much room they’ve got for improvement.

Romans 4
The Doctrine of Justification by faith without the works of the law was contrary to the notions the Jews had learnt from those that sat in Moses’ chair. He wanted to prove by reason and example talking about Abraham who the Jews glorified as we all came from his seed. All that are saved are justified in the same way as Abraham was by faith not by works. Abraham was faithful to God as he was obedient to God law. The whole chapter is devoted to being justified by faith not works.
Abraham Justified by Faith
1. What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? When you find something it’s for the simple reason your looking and when we are looking for the truth we find it, for the simple reason we wanted to be accepted and that is trusting, or having faith in God, who gives what man needs for being justified, as if we had never sinned.  When faith is at work, it produced fruit for we are abiding in the vine and it is normal to produce Godliness. For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. When we look at works we want to boast of what we have done and not what God does in our lives. So, Justification is based totally upon our faith in Gods ability to allow us to be ambassadors for the Kingdom of God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.’ It is our faith that has tremendous advantages, for it is God being able to work in us, as we are committed to Him, abiding in Him, not my will, Your will be done, Oh, Lord, is our way, truth and life You created for good will and peace. No one went through as much as Abraham for he was tested and tried more than any other man to show who was his leader. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Genesis 15:4 I am thy exceeding great reward. We are so enriched, as everything we are we owe it to the Lord, for He did the work that His Father God required of Him as He went alone to the Cross. So, it was God’s grace that was extended to Him, as He arose from the grave of sins consequence and now has justified us, given us grace, to be sanctified, redeemed and glorified by our Lord, to make a difference in our world.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: Lord may we be able to relax in your hands that are outstretched to all, so we can be justified by our faith in You, so we can attain unto righteousness, as we are now walking and talking to Jesus our Father God and the Holy Spirit. David was forgiven when he confessed his sin it bought Him justification, mercy and grace, which is ongoing as we are becoming more and more like Jesus. The word imputes, is totally the work of the Lord on the cross, as He suffered and died alone. Jesus forgave His tormentors for it is only Pardoned people who are the only blessed people and thus the Lord pardons us when we accept the fact we are to be blamed for our sins. It is not blaming others, it is accepting we are sinners and need forgiveness, that is being born again with a new spirit of God with in us, keeping us seeking God for His bountiful blessings.
“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.’ Blessed are those who know the truth that they are sinners and need to admit they are powerless and need help to empower them to do Gods will and not have their way.
Justified Before Circumcision
Does this blessedness then come upon the circumcised only, or upon the uncircumcised also? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. It is a fact Abraham was justified by faith some 14 years before he was circumcised. This should silence the fears of the power uncircumcised Gentiles and lower the pride of the conceitedness of the Jews, who gloried in circumcision.  10 How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while circumcised, but while uncircumcised. God wants us to know it is more important to have faith in God that even being circumcised. 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while still uncircumcised, that he might be the father of all those who believe, though they are uncircumcised, that righteousness might be imputed to them also, 12 and the father of circumcision to those who not only are of the circumcision, but who also walk in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had while still uncircumcised. Notice He received a sign, then a seal; a sign to represent and instruct, a seal to ratify and confirm. There are signs of absolute grace and favor; they are seals of the conditional promises, or mutual seals. God does in the sacraments, seals us, to be a God, therein seals to be His people, Jews-Christians. A sign of that original corruption which we are all born with, which is cut off by spiritual circumcision, a commemorating sign of God’s covenant with Abraham-a distinguishing sign between Jews and Gentiles, a sign of admission into the visible church, a sign prefiguring baptism, which comes in the room of circumcision, now under the gospel, when (the blood of Christ being shed) all bloody ordinances are abolished; it was an outward and sensible sign of inward and spiritual grace signified thereby.  A seal of the righteousness of the faith becoming justified according to the promise of Deuteronomy 30:12
That He might be the Father of all those that believe. Genesis 4:30, 21 He is the standard pattern of Faith justified as the liberties, privileges, honors and estates. Of the fathers descend to their children. Abraham was the Father of believers and believing Gentiles through they are not circumcised.
