To my brothers and sisters in Christ,
The past four years had forced me to reflect on my life. I was even surprised when the Lord instructed me to do this. At first, I took it on board with gladness, yet during the prep stages, I found myself looking deeper and deeper within myself, and pulled up some bad memories, experiences and the painful lessons learnt. Nevertheless, I’m doing this in faith and trusting in the Lord that this will touch the hearts of the men, young and old, who are going through challenges, difficulties and to find freedom, love and acceptance in Christ and their growth to become Godly men. Also, this serves a platform to challenge, rebuke and remind men not to forget God in their walk.
Love Jesus. Fear God.
For simplicity, I will note the issues down, for I know that for the younger men who may be going through this and the older men who have overcome and entered into new challenges and struggles.
Lads: You are a crucial component in the establishment of God’s kingdom. God created Adam to be in His presence, to work, to be the recipient of His word, to teach, to cultivate and protect the Garden of Eden. This will then help with building, managing and cultivating real relationships with the right foundation. And it all starts with making a conscious decision to change, and that only comes from the desire to please God.
There will be battles to fight on the path to manhood, public and hidden. But you are not alone. You see, the path to masculinity is not one to take alone but together as brethren.
Psalm 133: 1-3: Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.
Your past does not dictate your future. You are not your failures. Separate yourself and step into the calling that God has set aside for you. You may not know your specific purpose on this earth, maybe you do, but one of them is that you are destined to become a man.
And it all starts with submitting your lives to Jesus Christ and turning away from your former lives to live to honour and serve Him.
Despite what we see in modern culture, I truly believe that the men can be found, once they know of their identity in Christ.
It’s time to raise the men.
