Today our children are lost!!!!!!!!! We have few good models whom they can look up to. The media, Hollywood, the music industry is stealing our children away from us parents. Movie themes, music lyrics, satanic symbols are all so damaging to impressionable minds.
Men have to stand up and defend God their wives daughters, sons, family and homes. God made men to be leaders, not the type that are going to suppress women and children but ones who will stand up for the truth and be good models to their children. Children learn masculinity through fathers and strong male figures. What makes a man righteous is not obedience to the law but faith in Jesus Christ. We have been empowered by the grace of Christ won for us by the cross not just an intellectual faith but a commitment to Christ. The Holy Spirit (The spirit of God and the spirit of Jesus)the comforter will lead us to the truth and help us.
John Eldredge in the book “WILD AT HEART” addresses how men have to stand up and discover the heart that God gave them. It goes back to the wound that we have inherited from the fall of Adam and Eve. How men have to stand up and be who God created them to be. Sure we all fail from time to time and fall short especially when the world will try to drag us down. This book will help men find out how to be a better man, father, husband, friend.
This means that we should live and act in a way that supports the gospel. We should also arm ourselves with knowledge, both of the gospel (Ephesians 6:10-17) and of the world around us. First Peter 3:15 says, “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord”. All we can do is live and teach as Christ would and let Him take care of the rest.
