<012> Thesis: The "fatherhood" of God is critical to the identification of His goals and methods. Introduction: In our text, it is the "Father" Who raised Jesus from the dead. This is a critical declaration from many angles, but it is primarily a "faith" issue. The Ultimate Executor of Power has no need of agreement from any others to act, nor does He seek the approval of any others. But, Paul says, He is most accurately described as a "Father" when it comes down to His use of power for the sake of others. This evening we are going to look into why Paul would characterize Him in that manner.
