Men are Rising Up!

I was blessed to be invited to speak for a Men’s Conference at Connection Pointe Church of God in Grove City, Ohio. The conference theme was “Kingdom Manhood.” The Lord put three specific messages on my heart to share with the men. The first two were from the life of the Apostle Paul. I shared about his example of a Kingdom Man, who had to learn some very important lessons along his journey. The messages came from Philippians 3, where Paul said he has learned to forget what is behind and press on toward what lies ahead. On Friday evening, I talked about how Paul had a lot of things in his past he had to overcome, coming from the background of a murderous Pharisee against the church. I encouraged the men to leave the past behind them and not allow guilt and shame to keep them from becoming the men God created them to be. We had a time of response and the Lord moved. The second message from Paul’s life I shared on Saturday morning, about pressing on toward what is ahead. Like Paul, God desires we live a life of intimacy, power and anointing. I encouraged the men to believe God for more of Him presence in their lives, so that they can be used mightily in God’s Kingdom.

The final message I shared was from the life of Nehemiah. He was a man who rose up to his calling when God asked Him to do something for His Kingdom. At the expense of his own life and comfort, Nehemiah oversaw the rebuilding of the wall, despite intense opposition. I gave several principles from his story about how we can also become the men of the hour that God is looking for in our day. At the end, we laid hands on the men and prayed for God’s blessing to be evident in their lives as they become the Kingdom Men God is calling them to become.

I’m always grateful for any opportunity I have to minister to men, because I believe the Lord desires to do something substantial in the lives of men in the church today. We need men to step up into their role in their homes, churches and society. Praise the Lord for what He accomplished at the Connection Pointe Mens Conference, as men came together to seek His face!
