Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love."
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
What a high calling we men have from God! We are to be watchmen who pray and follow the Lord's leading so we can lead well. We are to stand firm in THE faith (heads) and not be easily led to and fro like dust in the wind. We are to be strong in the Lord as He created us, and as He is re-creating us to be (hearts). Ultimately, this strength is to be seen by the evidence of love in ALL that we do (hands). In other words, THE faith, God's truth, must be understood, believed, and lived out. A good way to remember these three aspects is by using the key words, "head," "heart," and "hands." The truth flows through our heads to our hearts and out our hands.
Thankfully, God's callings are His enablings. He equips us with what we need to accomplish His purposes. He has given us His Word, His Spirit, and one another. No man can live God's way in isolation. We need one another, like we need God's Word and prayer.
If you're able, then please join other men in the congregation as they meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 am in the Fireside Room for Bible Study and prayer.
Our current study is in the book of Romans, led by Dr. Taylor.
