“Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” (1Cor 16:13) KJV
The call for Biblical men is a call for us to impact not only our families, but the church as well.
The command is to watch. We must keep our guard up. We cannot rest in confidence that all will be well with our churches and our families. The enemy is roaming around searching for our weak spots. Let us keep our defenses up and strong.
We are commanded as men to stand firmly in the faith. Too many men are unfaithful to Christ. They refuse to love Him and serve Him. They don’t go to church. They don’t teach and train their children. They leave that to their wives. That is so sad. True men are men of God. Men of God love Jesus, learn what the faith is, contend for the faith , and unwaveringly hold to Jesus.
Be strong. Don’t let the world’s portrayal of men as bumbling idiots lead you to weaken and act the fool. Don’t prove them correct. Be strong. Fight. Grow stronger. Do it for your own soul’s sake. Do it for your precious wife. Be strong for your children. Be strong for your church.
Be a MAN!
