We are in a crisis. A faithful Man crisis. Men are folding and yielding left and right because of lack of values and their conviction of faith and the truth. If there is one thing you will learn about our brotherhood is that we are unwaveringly marching together towards a higher calling.
One of the principles Men need to take seriously is to relentlessly seek the truth. Seeking the truth of this short life is EXTREMELY uncomfortable. It forces you to change everything as soon as it is revealed. God has a plan for you and I and we are very clearly called to TAKE ACTION and play a role in the world around us. Not to sit back and hope for everything to work itself out.
We should ALL be striving to be of one mind, one body, and living/praying in community with each other. The world wants us to sit in our living rooms staring at our phones until we rot into the grave. We need to understand that one of the most powerful things we can do is love God with all of our heart and love our neighbor. There really is nothing greater that will give you and I the focus and energy we need to live a meaningful life and accomplish the unimaginable.
We are called to be radically different. The world has no problem raising our kids and influencing our behavior if we become weak and indifferent. That is NOT what we were built for. We were made for the battle. The biggest lie of them all is that there is not battle to fight. This thought process will lead to a miserable and lonely life wondering where you went wrong. Its time to prepare.
Prayer is our most powerful tool. It is not talked about enough. I would challenge that the majority of us do not even really understand how to pray effectively. Most of us didn’t grow up with an emphasis on praying but an emphasis on how to please everyone around you and go find worldly successes. We have to get back to our roots. Warriors have always and will always Pray when they need guidance and direction. My prayer for you, is that you continue to sharpen this sword as your primary weapon.
SEEK AND TELL THE TRUTH EVEN IF IT LEADS TO YOUR DEATH
We live in a world where everyone wants to get along. Even if it means falsely manipulating your entire life to achieve that goal. We are weaker than we have ever been in the history of the world. If you are reading this, God is calling YOU TO ENGAGE! To stand for something before it’s too late. Take action. Even if it is a small step to get your own heart and life in order. To truly care about the souls under your care. The people around you that you influence daily. Stop doing nothing and stand for the truth. it will be worth it… INTO THE BREACH. SHOULDER TO SHOULDER.
