Whether aggressive and toxic or passive and dismissive, masculinity is an idea that has been thoroughly misrepresented since the fall of man. What started as a holy, self-sacrificing, God-designed leadership command meant for blessing and flourishing has turned into a broken, self-serving, man-designed system of manipulation and pain.
I’d like to take a moment to lift our eyes and look at the journey of our church. Here are four things that I think are worth celebrating and three challenges that may lie ahead.
We now see how God used our obedience even if we couldn’t see it at the time. In fact, I now see how God was at work all while I was believing lies about the work we were doing. I want to share those lies with you. I highly doubt they exist only in teams that leave to reach new campuses. Chances are these lies exist in your own heart, where you are now. And we have to address them if we are going to continue planting churches and making disciples.
Jesus called us to live on mission, to love God and love others. What better, and easier, way can we do this than to invite people into our homes and feed them? Open up your house. Open up your life. Keep it simple. Serve others. Put your guests’ needs above your own. It doesn’t have to be much. Jesus just brought Himself to the table and if we can bring Jesus to our table with our friends, both believing and non-believing, I’d say we’re doing life-on-life together pretty well.
Here’s the truth, and let it sink down to your very toes and be the foundation from which you view injustice: God’s heart is FOR the lost and brokenhearted. Over and over throughout the Bible we see his mercy and comfort towards those who are oppressed, as well as his wrath towards those who take advantage of those in a lesser position like the poor, widows, orphans, and the foreigners living among us. God is not evil. In fact, God has made a way for restoration and salvation for everyone.
Exploring God is better in community.

How should a follower of Christ see through the smokescreen of lies and deception and make decisions on how to vote? Once we call him Lord we exchange death for His kingdom. Like those we vote for, we ourselves are representatives, and our representation is of a greater kingdom. So when you vote, just breathe, and cast your ballot praying for our temporal leaders while knowing your allegiance is to our eternal leader King Jesus Himself.
