Looked Around Lately?


27.10.2014

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.

Why Leaders Must Lead in Evangelism


04.09.2014

A good word for church leaders of all kinds!  Ed Stetzer, in his blog article, entitled, “Evangelism Is A Core Leadership Quality,” writes of this missing priority in so many lives of leaders.  If we would lead, it must be in the direction of the Gospel.  The entire article is found here:

http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2014/august/evangelism-is-core-leadership-quality.html

Read the gist of it below:

“If we’re going to talk about the need for an evangelistic engagement and an evangelistic people, we have to be those who engage in evangelism. We have to be those who are sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

All That For This – “Can We Talk?”


01.09.2014

“The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.”–Billy Graham

This is an incredible truth.  Our praise to God intensifies when we bring others to Him!  I love the phrase, “raving fans.”  When we are raving fans of the Gospel, what does it compel us to do?  We want others to know what WE know about Christ.  And to do that well, we must be equipped to do it.
