A Father’s Blessing | Father’s Day 2023 | Pastor Andrew Cromwell

Proverbs 10:22 ESV: The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

Blessing: the advantageous situation resulting from God’s favorable actions toward someone.

James 1:17 NKJV: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Genesis 1:28-30 ESV: 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.

  • David (1 Chronicles 17:27)
    1 Chronicles 17:27 ESV: Now you have been pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever before you, for it is you, O LORD, who have blessed, and it is blessed forever.”
  • Jesus (Matthew 3:16-17)
    Matthew 3:16-17 ESV: 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
  • You and I (Ephesians 1:3)
