Trevin Wax shares some wise words for everyone, but especially good for us as men to consider. We naturally feel an urge to stand as warriors (especially where it’s easy: online), fighting injustices and calling out wrongs, but as men of God, we should also be modeling the ability to recognize our limitations, practice wisdom, and care for others.

For Men Of God, From Men Of God
Conversational content with reformed disposition; by men, for men.
We’ll send a carrier pigeon with a summary of each week’s content—free as grace!
It’s true we are offered free forgiveness because of Jesus Christ, but don’t be confused or mislead: to be a true follower of Christ will cost you everything. If you see no change and no costs since following Jesus, you probably aren’t actually following him.
If there was ever a man to narrate Paul’s Damascus Road encounter with Christ, singer-songwriter and Christian Johnny Cash could ably fill your ears with the opening chords of his cover of the traditional folk song, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.”
Whether for new or seasoned believers, a Bible study offers key elements that make up a believer’s walk on earth from the fellowship to the study of the Scriptures. Here are vital pointers from one guy to another to help you get out of the way and make the most of your time.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most of us become believers knowing that it means being a disciple of Christ. Most of us know being a disciple of Christ is costly. We “count the costs” and live strong, but do we lose track of what our reward truly is?
Our monthly roundtable discussion with guys from the community for our #HoldFastChats show! We’re chatting about how we can be sure to grow as men of God over the summer. Tune in and join us live and ask us questions during and after the show!
Living under leaders who do not honor God is a difficult reality, but it’s a reality given to us with specific instruction from God’s Word to trust God’s sovereign wisdom. This calling is currently becoming more difficult than we’ve ever known, yet more crucial than ever.
We are reading, as a community, through the book, “Sensing Jesus”! So this is the go-to post for publicly sharing what you’re learning, being convicted or encouraged by, and discussing with your bros! Join in and share your thoughts!
Over the last few months I have been struggling with purpose. My purpose. Not just the struggle of finding my purpose but fighting to maintain it when so much around me wants to steal it or reshape it.
This short documentary on the exemplary and (though he wouldn’t like the term) “legendary” writer, thinker, teacher, and man of God, J.I. Packer, is an excellent and moving reminder of the kind of men we want to be.
We’re relaunching #HoldFastChats in pair with our #GospelFoundations series. As with all HFCs, we’re answering this question: “What truths do we as guys need to “hold fast” to in regards to this topic (gospel foundations) and how would you encourage us to do so?”
When we rally to “Take America Back”, what are we really meaning, and more importantly, what are our hearts believing? While the heart behind this might appear acceptable, there is potential danger in it. The reality may disappoint you for the future of America.
Unless you’ve been under a rock this last week, you’ve likely heard of this viral issue of #StarbucksRedCups going around. Apparently, “Christians” are offended by these cups. But… why?
Every person on the planet, no matter our race, our place, or our status of success, is involved in the same story, with the same attempts to fill an eternal longing and void, and with the same solution awaiting us whether we realize it or not.
You are “dirty”, “unclean”, “guilty” and “wretched” – or so you think. But why do you think this? Is this right? Is this helpful? Should we really spend so much of our time and emotions thinking of ourselves as these “wretched sinners”?
