Manly Fathers (pt 1) — Who Are You?
God Made You
In our quest to find out what a Manly Father is and who they are, we will need toThe first thing we need to first understand that God made man, and God made woman.
1 Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in obedience to him.
2 You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
4 Yes, this will be the blessing
for the man who fears the Lord.
5 May the Lord bless you from Zion;
may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
all the days of your life.
6 May you live to see your children’s children—
peace be on Israel.
Let me begin by proclaiming a fact. That fact is that Real Men are in very short supply. I am talking about Real men who will say, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. Not everyone who is a male is a man. I mean a real man, a godly man. You can be born a male, but it takes maturity to be a man. You’re young only once, but you can be immature forever. What I am talking about is more than being born male, I am talking about being a real, masculine, virile, Godly, Biblical man. This is why Manly Training even exists.
So, what is real manliness?
What is God’s plan for the man? If you purchase a dishwasher, a refrigerator, a stereo, a CD player, or anything else, you get a book of instructions. If you get a new car, you get a book, an owners manual. God has given us a book. It is the Word of God and from the Word of God we’re going to find God’s plan for the man. We’re not going to get it from Tom Brokaw and we’re not going to get it from Donald Trump. Let me be clear, We’re not even going to get it from Bruce Willis, Clint Eastwood or any other popular Hollywood actor. We’re going to have to find out from God’s Word what God’s plan for the man is. There is a basic fundamental difference between men and women and the devil is doing all that he can do to blur that distinction.
Man And Woman
The Bible says in Genesis 1:27 that God made them in the beginning, male and female. Today, there are those who are trying to tell us that there is no fundamental difference between a man and a woman and they’re saying this in the name of “equality”. I tell you today that men and women are equal, but they are not the same.
The first thing we need to do is to understand that God made man, and God madewoman.
God made them different. And God made them different for a purpose. If you want to become the man that God created you to be, you will need to study Psalm 128. You will need to search for God’s wisdom in this Psalm like someone who is searching for a hidden treasure!
Let’s pull this Psalm apart in a way that makes sense to the modern man! It is in this Psalm that we are going to find out what a realmanis. We are going to find out what God’s plan is for the man. And in doing so, I pray we will find out who we are!
Are you ready? Will you follow me on this journey? Can you handle it? I dare you to read through this series. It may just change your life. Don’t miss it!
