Manly man series

We at Christ Community have started a series: Jesus the Man.

Here at CCC-Sarpy we will end up with a 5 week series because...well, trust me. We have to have an extra Sunday.

Anyway, I preached on Jesus: The Man with a Purpose. I challenged the men to realize that if they lived with purpose, the purpose God intended for them to have....they will impact and influence society. I Corinthians 16:13-14 tells us, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love."

This was a challenge from the Apostle Paul to the men, challenging them to step up and act like men! Jesus was THE man, we have an opportunit to live like a man and make a difference.

I came across a quote that caused me to reread because I am in the "manly state of mind."

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." -Martin Luther King, Jr.

I encourage you to attend or at least go to www.cccomaha.org to listen to the messages addressed specifically with men in mind.
