I believe one of the most important tenants of being a Godly man is a man who plans and executes. I love what Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” God wants us to have plans and He wants to be a part of them.
Our natural instincts drive us to try to be in control and handle life ourselves, but God’s word tells us a different reality and condemns are natural instincts. We have to make a choice as to what we depend on.
Whether it means having a one-time discussion, discipling someone, or running for state/local/national office, as young men in Christ, we have the opportunity to be the standard bearers in politics and culture.
We’ve seen a lot of people place their faith in horrible candidates for rulers lately. This video of this talk given from a political science professor to a collegiate ministry is an excellent reminder of who has always been the perfect ruler we’re longing for.
Jesus is much more confrontational, unpleasant, and “unkind” than I would have imagined. His ways and words would often be condemned in many of our churches. But, even though he’s not always nice, he’s always good.
As is the natural course of life, things devolve and deteriorate over time. Because of the influence and presence of sin, everything is in a perpetual state of decay. And for all our technological advance, death is still undefeated.
R.C. Sproul once said that Jonathan Edwards’ monumental Freedom of the Will (1754) stands as “the most important theological work ever published in America.” Such high praise is indicative of Edwards’ genius and his ability to speak with relevance to the church.
We’ve known we needed something more for quite a while. So after months and months of work on this, we are excited to roll out a new category of content on The Majesty’s Men. Here’s what it’s all about and how you can contribute to it!
As a lifelong overly critical person, I’ve learned a lot about being judgmental. Below I go in depth into ways I’ve wrongly judged people, the difference between good and bad judgment, how we justify our judgmental attitudes and more. It’s a deep and ugly sin that I hope this post exposes!
Satan schemes day and night to sully the character of God in our eyes. He urges us to draw a line between the history of God and our current estimation of God’s potential to will and to work in our lives. Satan wants you to be divorced from God’s record of faithfulness.
Doing “big things” has become a distraction at best and trap at worst for men in our culture. It’s glorified everywhere we look. Jose tells of his personal discovery in college as to what the true key to success is and what we can each do to truly achieve it.
Young men have many reasons we may not receive the trust and leadership we think we should have, but I’ve recognized from failures both in myself and others I’ve lead, two extremely common and vital traits we must demonstrate rightly to be the leader we think we can be.
What should Christians think about men and women in comparison? Are men superior to women? The answer has as much to do with marriage as it does with March Madness.
Throughout his political career, William Wilberforce was addicted to God’s grace and goodness. Wilberforce seemed to possess an anointing for spreading God’s grace by way of political legislation, social reform, and charitable donations.
Pastors can often be caught preaching from similar passages on repeat, but this isn’t the case with this sermon, in which pastor Jim Blalock delivers a message on forgiveness, atonement, and essentially, the gospel, as seen in the letter to Philemon.
