There is a dire need for spiritual fathers and mothers in the body of Christ in this hour. Too many young leaders are falling away, the divorce rate is through the roof, and far too many believers are carrying church hurt. The resultant bitterness is killing them and causing them to isolate.
But here’s the good news: God is awakening the Malachi 4:6 mandate for the hearts of the children to return to the fathers and mothers. Many are the teachers in the body of Christ, but few are the spiritual fathers and mothers. If we are to step into the fullness of Christ in our generation, this must come to pass.
