God's masculine image

Take a STAND in your life for God’s values

As men we need to be in touch with our sense of outrage. Women also have outrage, but in God’s economy we have been gifted with the physical strength to stand and deliver. When we see immorality, we need to FEEL our outrage and STAND. When we see injustice, we must STAND against it.

So that is why I am putting up this video. The way this person takes advantage of homeless people who are so desperate for money that they can be made to do anything… to feed an audience of people who won’t feel enraged enough to change the channel.As you watch this, do you see the injustice? Does it make the inner man want to STAND up and be counted? As a man, do you feel that you want to protect these people who are being taken advantage of?

If your heart cries out over this injustice, then you are growing into His image, because He says time and again that His heart is to protect and help the homeless, not pay them money to injure themselves.

Again let me say, women can and will any must do the same, but I’m writing to men on this blog. When you see something that God Himself would not tolerate, STAND against it. When you see victims, STAND for them. When you see bullies, STAND against them. Kick them off your TV show. Kick them off your TV, period. Don’t let them in your house. Don’t tolerate it.

Be a man and take a STAND in your life for God’s values.

  1. The truth about what you have said is that as men of God, we are responsible to stand up. Adam was not a man of God, he was passive when it came to standing up for what is right – The rest of the world has pretty much followed his example. Christ however, has set the true example of servant-leader as the roll that we as men of God are to follow. We are not to be passive about immorality, nor are we to be passive towards injustice, those who hunger, or those who suffer.

    We are called to know the truth, to live the truth, and to live the example given to us by Christ. If that doesn’t take courage, I don’t know what does. Be of “good” courage! When you compare what the world calls benevolence, courage, and justice, they don’t compare on any level with following in the footsteps of the Master.

    I hope you’ll reconsider your choice of disabling comments. I think your blog is great! I just joined google and searched for “christian men” to find blogs like yours, and yours was at the top of the list. Brother, people need to hear that men are listening to God and that in hearing Him, He is changing our lives! We are the only example some will ever have to get a glimps of Gods power in the life of another.

    Here’s another thought, have you ever considered writing or letting someone else, tell your story? I haven’t read all of your blog yet, but what I have seen is very encouraging. Your passion for helping others is borne of the work God is doing in your life, and that is the very example that needs to be seen by others to demonstrate Gods desire toward us.

    God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son…
    This means so much to us as believers, we get it; but the world, like Nicodemus, are still scratching their heads. Communicating with them on their level, where they live, is the key to revealing Gods passion about who they are, and how much He desires to know them and for them to know Him.

    You’ve probably done a fair amount of soul searching to come to your decision, I hope you’ll consider the possibility of passing the cup to another and remaining involved as an overseer.

    God Bless you!
