Trust God for Provision – Freaky and Faithful Together


05.12.2014

This is an anonymous guest blog from a friend who has seen God provide in a great way for a mission trip.  He’s Faithful!

“I want to tell people what a great God we serve and how when He says He is going to provide He does. I only need $400 left to earn for my trip. The gifts of three people got me there. God gives bigger than we can ask or imagine.

It Takes TIME to be a Better Man


29.10.2014

“Better men” don’t just happen.  We’re certainly not BORN better.  No, the depravity of mankind is pretty deeply etched on the heart of every man.

Becoming a better man is process that finds its power in a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, and its application in where we spend our time.   Paul would say it like this, “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, for the days are evil.”

Have you looked around you lately?  This nation is falling apart.  Literally.  We’re experience massive upheaval in our culture. The plates are shifting.  Morals are under deliberate and steadfast attack and the enemy of the grace of Jesus Christ is emboldened.

How a “Better Man” Talks


08.10.2014

How Do We Act Like Men in our Conversation?  Paul tells us to “act like men” in 1 Corinthians.  Eventually, our “talk” is affected by the power of the Holy Spirit within us.  How do you talk?  How should a “better man” talk?   Russ Gregory finds these four keys in the book of James to help us.

How We Can “Stand Firm” and Be BETTER MEN


26.09.2014

The Bible says for men to “stand firm in the faith.”  What does that mean?  Have you ever heard the phrase, “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything?” Men are falling for anything and everything and standing for almost nothing – and the collateral damage around us is sickening.  It’s hard to believe that we can make a mess for so many just because we don’t stand firm, but it’s true.

Why Men Sleep Through the Chance to be BETTER MEN


19.09.2014

We could be better men, but we’re not alert to what’s going on around us! We’re distracted, daydreaming, chasing after immature fantasies, or we are SLEEPING. In 1 Corinthians 16, Paul told men to “Be on the alert.” Be watchful. Be awake!

So what are we not alert to? What are we sleeping through, besides SportsCenter? …more

Why We’re Not “Better Men” Than We Are


12.09.2014

What keeps us from being “better men”?

That question has to be asked!  Why are men not “better” than we are are at being leaders, husbands, fathers and friends?

The Bible contains an incredible challenge to men.  The challenge is an example – Jesus Christ.  The Perfect One.  Amazingly, we are called to be like him.  It was Paul who said, “Imitate me as I imitate Christ.”  Simple, but simply impossible, too.

You Make Me Want to be a Better Man


05.09.2014

Men are confused.  In our culture, it’s self-inflicted wound.  But even deeper, it’s a sin-inflicted wound.  Adam was confused about his role, too.

Because men are confused, we often try to find ‘our own way’ to express manhood.  It usually comes out pretty weird.  Or worse, damaging to everyone around us.  There’s a better way.
