This weekend, I'm speaking at the Men's retreat for the Livermore Church of Christ. The topic is, "Fearless." It's what every man is supposed to be, isn't it. Yet, in these times, it's hard to not be just a little afraid…or even a lot afraid.
- Work harder for God.
- Don't look at porn.
- Be a better husband and father.
This isn't going to captivate their imaginations, or call the best out of them. What's missing, it seems to me, is a clear vision of what a godly man looks like, and what he's capable of. When we reduce godly manhood to work harder, be better, and don't look at porn, we miss out on the potential power of God's work in the lives of men.
