You all know I love my Mighty Men! This small group has been more than a group that meets once a week. It is truly life on life. This month we did not have many activities together, but we did spend a lot of time together. We welcomed back our brother Natan from Israel this month. We also began work on our Man Code. We are going through each week a different code to being a Godly man, a real man. We have also spent a lot of time praying together one morning a week.
We have covered two themes of being a Man of God so far. The first was, men who live in Purity. We talked about the difference between temptation and sin. We talked about how we are naturally attracted to the idea of Sex, but that it is something God reserves for our wife only. This means, we need to stand together with God’s strength to keep each other and ourselves pure in his eyes. We talked about the key areas: Eyes, Mind, Actions, Words, and Heart. We looked in proverbs where a father gives his son wisdom to run, to completely avoid the street of the harlot.
The Second thing we talked about is being men of integrity, that like Daniel, our lives are the same in every situation. Whether we are by ourselves, with Christian friends, or with non christian friends, we look the same. We made a list of our own personal core values. This way we could have a tool with which to measure our decisions, so that we are known as men of integrity. This is so exciting and I am thankful that this idea actually came from the boys. They wanted this! Please pray for these young men to continue to grow in Christ!
