Spiritual Warfare in the Life of a Man

Do you really believe in the spiritual realm? Do you believe there is a battle raging for the souls of men? It is hard to imagine that this is true if we are living in relative comfort and ease. But no matter our earthly situation, we need to think and live like soldiers. In Ephesians 6:10-20, Paul is likely getting to the main point he wanted to make all along to the Christians in Ephesus. He frames the Christian life in light of the cosmic spiritual battle that is always going on, but about which we are often ignorant....

Seven Ways to Care for Your Wife

In that extremely complex and, at times, hard to understand a section of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, we come across the comparison between the married and the unmarried (1 Cor. 7). In short, the Apostle insists that marriage is good (and the norm) but that it brings with it a division of attention. Those who are married have a preoccupation with their spouse. Those who are unmarried are free to more fully “care about the things of the Lord” while “the married man cares about…how to please his wife” and “the married woman cares about…how to please her husband.” This forces us to ask...

A Charge to be Missional Men

Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us a charge to make disciples of all nations and to teach them to observe the whole counsel of God (Matthew 28:18-20).

What was originally a mission spearheaded by men of God has become a tertiary issue, if even that, in confessing Evangelical churches all across the world. All over we see men failing to comprehend their position as the spiritual heads of houses and leaders in the churches....

The Kind of Man God Wants You and Me to Become

What kind of man are you? I remember six months before meeting my now wife Sarah of almost ten years being convicted by the Holy Spirit. I wasn’t living how I knew a Christian should live at the time. Instead, I was living contrary to how a Christian should live. God was kind that day at that church in downtown Seattle as He convicted me of my sin and showed me how prideful I was. I then repented of my sin and asked the Lord to help me become a man of God. Six months after this I met...

Biblical Manhood: A Life of Strength Displayed in Weakness in Christ

Men today are taught through our contemporary culture to either be macho, or to not display their strength, and instead, be weak. The end result of both approaches will lead men to apathy. On the one hand, a man who is super macho will tend towards being a prideful man, instead of a humble man. The man who never shows his strength and is instead weak will tend towards apathy. Instead of focusing on how strong one is, whether that is physical, mental, emotionally, or intellectually, the man of God is most concerned about the person and work of...
