June 27, 2022 - Good Morning! It’s Monday, June 27.
Here at First Baptist Center, we’re working to grow and nurture a Ministry to Men. During the last three months, about 40 guys have been part of weekly prayer meetings. And tomorrow night at 6:00 we’re sponsoring a community Men’s Fish Fry. One of our deacons has a huge and amazing “man-cave” at 717 CR 1140. Any man is welcome to join us for some great food and great fellowship.
In our 21st century world, it’s challenging to live as a Christian man. The culture around us is constantly trying to move men in a different direction, away from God's light and into darkness. The Bible uses the term "man of God" 35 times. So, what are the characteristics of a man of God? We can answer that question by examining the lives of the great male characters in the Bible story.
Men like Abraham and Moses and Elijah and David and Solomon and Isaiah and Peter and Paul and John were examples of strength and courage and faithfulness. But they were also human and when they fell short of God's best, they were willing to admit their sin and ask for forgiveness. And when they fell down, they got back up again - not through their own strength - but through the power of God.
Meet you back here tomorrow,
