Dads…there are Six gifts that God has laid on my heart to 
share with “us over the next six weeks. 
Six gifts that He gives to us all freely to receive unconditionally daily.
I love music. 
When I was a kid my grand parents belonged to a record club (Google “records” if you need a definition).
Every month…new arrivals came in the mail. You never knew from one genre to the next. 
So needless to say I was exposed to a wide range of artist from:
Willie Nelson (On the road Again) to Gladys Knight and the pips (Midnight train to Georgia)
From Frank Sinatra (My Way) to the Doobie Brothers (Jesus is Just Alright)
from Barry Manilow (Looks Like We Made It) to Ted Nugent (Stranglehold)
Some of my earliest memories are from listening to albums from Johnny Cash live from 
San Quintin and Folsom Prison (A boy named Sue)
to Andy Williams Variety show singing (Moon River).
Included in those albums (records) were many Bands…just as diverse!
Eagles; Lynrd Skynyrd; Bread; Back Street Boys, and even great marching bands!
One of my favorite tunes was a Skynrd song called "Call me the Breeze."
Still today I am always on the lookout for my favorite new song!
One of my favorite’s old hymns is called the
Hymn of promise #707 (Typically cannot sing all the way through)
Although I love the melody…its the words that say it all..
"In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see."
In the book of Revelation 5:9 - We read about “A New Song” 
9 And they sang a new song, saying: 
“You are worthy to take the scroll 
and to open its seals, because you were slain, 
and with your blood you purchased 
for God persons from every tribe and language 
and people and nation.
DADS, a few thoughts on this New Song available to us all...
  • The suffering Saviour has died, has broken the bond of the oppressor, has claimed, by right of purchase, mankind as His own; and the price was His blood. 
  • The song of redemption was a different song, and is one that would never have been sung if man had not fallen, and if the Redeemer had not died. 
  • This song strikes notes which the other songs do not!
  • In this sense the song was new; it will continue to be new in the sense that it will be sung afresh as redeemed millions continue to ascend to heaven.
  • The words show, too, that the fruits of the redemption are intended for the whole world
  • Not limited to any chosen nation, though some are excluded by their own act. Out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.It includes all the bases of classification of mankind, 
  • all the circumstances which separate men, the barriers which were overthrown by the redeeming work of Christ.
  • The words point to a particular act performed at a definite time, the death of Christ, by which he repurchased men from sin and Satan for the service of God; the price of the purchase being the shedding of his own blood. 
So DADs the first gift God gives us today and EVERY DAYis a “NEW SONG
DADS…let’s receive this gift and sing this New Song Today! You Have Been Remade!!
DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
 
To follow the “Suit Up” Movement…
