Gospel of John
John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
Why men’s ministry? Because IRON SHARPENS IRON. Many men lack clarity about what it truly means to be a man. As a result, MANY MEN ARE IN A STATE OF CONFUSION. They end up disappointed with life and find themselves lonely and drifting. They are comparing and competing, focused mainly on trying to keep up with everybody else.
Too many guys don’t know how to answer the question … “who am I as a man?” … and they end up settling for a “less-than” life. They don’t have a compelling manhood vision that is bigger and more meaningful than the conventional manhood that much of the world seems to be chasing.
Here’s the good news. God has a really clear purpose and vision for us as men that is unique to use as men and He lays it out for us right there in his word. It’s called … Authentic Manhood … and it’s not only clear, it’s inspiring and exciting and motivating.
Men today are faced with new challenges and these challenges are different than those of the past generation’s. Working longer hours just to make ends-meet while burdening more responsibility on our wives to be both mom and dad. With what free time we do have, we are staring into our phones or computers, searching Facebook or some other form of social media for our pretend friends rather than having one-on-one conversations and relationships with those who needs us most, OUR CHILDREN and WIVES.
Some men are seeking the privacy of a closed door partaking in lust-filled fantasy, all the while discovering that they are losing or have lost the intimacy with their wives. Men, internet pornography makes more money than Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NFL combined. It has never been easier for a MAN to fall into this sinful trap and behavior.
The purpose of this Men’s Ministry is to cultivate you into the MAN that God created you to be. He did not create YOU to sit around idle and disengaged; he created YOU to LEAD.
Lead as husbands to YOUR wives, Lead as fathers in YOUR homes, Lead in YOUR communities and at church.
