Greetings Man of God!
A MAN OF GOD…
Building muscle and building faith require the acceptance of a required amount of pain. A strong physical core requires the pain of crunches from many different angles. A strong spiritual core requires the pain of hard choices in many different spaces of your life for God. And just like we may struggle emotionally BEFORE a hard decision and enjoy the feeling of disciplining ourselves AFTER we put in the work. We hate the pain in the moment but we love the result.
SO TODAY …remind a buddy, a friend, or a brother in Christ of this TRUTH by sharing with him this week’s video I HATE IT BUT I LOVE IT. He’ll thank you and he will be a better man

1. I Hate It But I Love It
To become strong involves sacrifice. All men need to be reminded of that powerful FACT. It’s in the small spaces of life where discipline or disobedience make or break us. Men who understand this DYNAMIC of personal, physical, and spiritual advance go far in life and with God. Men who succumb to feelings or pressure in the moment often underestimate the consequences. Sound familiar? To be God’s man is to possess a LOVE-HATE relationship with our disciplines that get us where we know we need to be. Honest men know this is what separates the men from the boys. Join men’s expert and Pastor Kenny Luck for this four part series on the key to advancing in every area of your life.

I want to go to a deeper issue we have to examine. The next part of fantasy we need to look at is the emotional component. What are the emotional forces that drive men to fantasy?
Emotional maturity and emotional intimacy are the forces in play that drive us into fantasy. If pressure reveals gaps in our emotional maturity, then the key to our maturity is our perspective on pressure.
Do you see the connection? If you want to grow, you have to have a way of thinking about pressure because it’s not a matter of if pressure is coming on your life. It’s a matter of when it comes. You can’t escape pressure.
Would you agree that people are looking for champions today?
The world needs champions for life, champions for good, champions for justice…
You know that Jesus said in Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
The purpose of God’s Spirit coming on God’s men was to be the champion of those who have not, of those who know not, and of those who are put down a lot.
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!
