Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. – 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (ESV)
In the postmodern world, few topics invite as much controversy as discussions of gender. Adding a religious dimension makes the concept even more prone to distortion and emotional reactions. Some of what the Bible says about men and women, how they relate, and what God’s expectations are for them may run contrary to our preferences. Those ideas can conflict with our cultures, upbringing, or the opinions of our peers. And yet, the definition of biblical manhood is exactly that: biblical, not opinion-driven. (Gotquestions.com)
Biblical manhood can be boiled down to five basic principles, which each man is expected to conform to. These are 1) Be a Man of the Word and Prayer, 2) Accept Accountability, 3) Take Responsibility, 4) Lead Intentionally, and 5) Persevere Through Adversity to Make God Known in your sphere of influence. Men who fail to meet these expectations are not “acting” as “men,” biblically speaking, but as something less noble.
Join us for a time of challenge, discussion, and encouragement as we learn what it means, biblically, to “act like men.”
