Monday Man Church Assignment
March 9, 2015
Our world is constantly throwing out ideas of what it means to really be a man. The reality is that everyone has their own opinion, but as a Christian the only blueprint men should mimic their life after is that of the Bible. To know what a true man is, we need look no further than the life of Jesus Christ himself. Makes sense doesn’t it? As the Son of God, Jesus is the epitome of manhood, manliness and what we should strive for in our attempt at being a reflection of true maturity in Christ.
So, as we talked about Sunday night; here are a couple of the principles as reminders:
- We need a solid foundation. Humility makes a great foundation as it is grounded in the firm belief that God is ultimately and totally in control.
- When we make scripture the foundation of our lives, we starting “painting our lives” as God desires us to.
“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” (Philippians 2:3-5)
What areas in your life could use another dose of humility this week?
