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.
All our content revolves around one main mission: helping men glorify Jesus Christ as their king, and joyfully live out that reality, every day, in every realm of their life. We post written articles, audio, videos, and images, containing gospel truth, theology, practical wisdom, creative inspiration, and more, all to fulfill this mission. Our posts are created by men of God, for men of God, from an evangelical, reformed, complementarian view point.
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!
We all love the idea of superheroes. Yet, there is no such thing — especially in the Church. If you’re willing to admit it, you’ve likely tried to be one at times, and you’ve likely had times you wanted a superhero to take on roles and responsibilities, saving you from needing to do them. This isn’t the way we work in the church though. There’s a better way.
Because of the societal views (and sadly some “christian” views) on gender, Bible believing Christians need to be more precise in the way we speak about biblical manhood and womanhood. There’s two ways we can talk about gender to someone. The first is the most common way and quite negative; the second is a much better, more biblical, and positive way.
Yesterday the U.S. Senate Democrats voted down what should have been a slam-dunk easy passage of a bill meant to protect the lives of the most vulnerable. So with this video, let’s talk about the real reason the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act didn’t pass; the undeniable political nature of this; the fact that there’s seemingly no way a Christian can align with Democrats; and, how men need to step up to this issue.
If you want to grow in spiritual maturity, you need accountability. However, many of us need to refine the way we think about accountability—less grilling each other in zeal and more trustworthy brothers affirming each other in Christ for the glory of God.
We’re trying something new with the start of 2019: We’re launching a new community outpost with a Facebook group! Join in, build friendships with like-minded brothers in Christ, and enjoy some peer-to-peer mentoring as we encourage one another in faith and life with our Lord, Jesus!
Our natural hearts warp authority into something it actually isn’t. However, when we meditate on how Jesus came to us and gained his authority, we get both a deeply challenging and extremely encouraging glimpse of authority that’s undeniably applicable and helpful in our own lives.
We too often use social media as a platform for arguing and positioning. You can make even a correct statement or valuable opinion about something be an obnoxious sound bite on social media if you don’t converse with gentleness and grace. We are called to do better.
Ligon Duncan give us a Godly and wise social media strategy as well as an example of what responsible leadership in the public sphere looks like. With a quick thread of tweets he outlines 10 simple strategic commitments he has for his social media use that we’d all do well to emulate. In fact, it’s great advice even when not on social media.
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.
“There is an entire generation of young people who think they are so important that they somehow need to be world changers; most of them will never come close.” This video is a quick but vital word for us as men in our day when it’s so easy to be distracted from our mission.
For the second time in five years, we hit pause on all we were doing. Now, we’re sharing a thorough reflection and vision about our future as an organization and community going forward! Give this a read or a listen and see if it resonates with you. We’d love to have you join with us!
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.”
It’s a major point of confusion in our society. The way we speak of women, and the way we allow speech about women, indicate the level of respect and dignity we ascribe to our fellow divine image-bearers.
This Humble Beast and Desiring God collaboration video is an honest and hard look at the reality of tens of millions of babies being murdered in their mother’s womb since 1973, and, most importantly, a plea to the person responsible. Yes, person.
It’s an extremely liberating experience to realize you are already seen and known for who you really are. But even after many of us learn we have this in Christ, we stop walking in it with our friends and community. I’ve seen repeatedly seen this lately and been reminded how enslaving it is.
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.
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.
