God has called us as believers to go make disciples, I think so many times that when we read that in the Bible we just shrug it off, and say something like 'well that's nice, but I'm not that guy.'
That's a lie from the devil himself. YOU ARE THE GUY! God can use you and will use you! God has a mission for YOU! Don't listen to the enemy. If every man took God serious I think we'd have less problems in our world! I think we'd have full churches and more committed families to the cause and mission of Jesus Christ!
Men it's time to take God serious! Here is a good way to start.
1. Love your wife well! Show her the love of Jesus, and minister TO HER!
Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.” - 1 Peter 3:72. Love your children well! Don't be a heavy handed jerk to your kids!
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:43. Be committed to the Gospel centered mission at your church, show up and be an active member!
Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:25
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. Acts 20:28
I firmly believe that if we as men truly took just these few small verses seriously that life would transform in our homes and churches...and as a result of those two places transforming, the rest of the world would also be transformed.
So let's do this!
