1. Bringing out the Best
Unless you live in a cave you are coming in contact with people. Wives, kids, co-workers, friends, neighbors, girlfriends, men, women, and standing in line for your coffee. It doesn't matter whether you have lots of contact or limited amounts of interaction with others, the question is: what happens to others after they come in contact with YOU? The issue is NOT: Am I influencing others? The issue IS: What kind of influence am I having? Do people feel valued or marginalized? Encouraged or discouraged? Better or bitter? Noticed or neglected? Closer to God or more distanced from Him? If you are God's man you have a responsibility to influence others and bring out the best in them. Watch this series and learn how to expand your spiritual impact in the lives of people around you. Men's expert and pastor Kenny Luck maps out how to create a positive blast zone of influence.
I had an 84-year old seminary professor that I asked: "When does a man stop enjoying sex?"
He said, well Kenny, I don?t know, but it?s sometime after 84. I thought, dude, you are my hero!
If you have been married a long time and settled into an emotional existence with your spouse, or if you have settled with your sexual life, don?t write yourself a hall pass out of this. God has created us as sexual beings. It's such a powerful tool for us, and no matter how old we are, it can be a force for good.
When we look at Romans 8:29, I want you to see that God?s preplanned journey for every person is to become like Christ. "For those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters."
His plan is not to accessorize your life. It's not for you to become wiser. It is for you to become like Jesus.
That?s the definition of every God's man. Let's get that really, really clear.
4. In case you missed them….
I am praying for you each week during the month. Next month, I'm going to ask for your help with a few things. Again, take courage and live as God's man, flaws and all. Don't let your struggles keep you from doing good. Come to the site and share your comments and thoughts, and encourage others! Until next week...
YOU ARE THE REVOLUTION!
