Today’s Challenge: Start watching the streaming media and invite some men and tackle the tuff cultural issues facing men today!
Fantasy affects our relationship with God. It desensitizes, disappoints and disconnects us from God AND the people we love.
Not only does our darkened understanding separate us from God, but when we separate ourselves from God to pursue fantasy, a natural by-product is that our relationships with people start tanking too.
Not only do I become DESENSITIZED to God, but also to people. Fantasy creates callousness toward people because it is selfish. When you are selfish, you are looking out for yourself. When you are looking out for you, others don’t matter so much, do they?
Deliverance. We all want it. We all need it.
Deliverance is the source of everything good in your life.
Think about your deliverance. Think about the man that you are right now, or maybe you want to become a delivered man? A strong and tender God has delivered you, you who are an alien in this world. When I get that, when I truly own that, I reproduce it. God reproduces that in your life. That’s what God is looking for!
We see deliverance when God commissions us to deliver aliens, just as he did with Moses and the people stuck in Egypt. You see it in Deuteronomy 10:19: “And you are to love those who are aliens, for you yourselves were aliens in Egypt.”
God is telling us to love aliens, love people stuck in their own Egypt, whether it’s human trafficking, an addiction or whatever. We too have been may be in our own Egypt. We’re directed to love those people and deliver them in the same way God delivers us.
Men become what they worship.

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!
