Jesus was a man’s man
“The Lord is with you, O mighty man of valor.”
I want to challenge each of you today to be a full-out, full-throttle believer and follower of Christ Jesus! But let me say something especially to the men who are reading today. And women, please share this with your brothers, husbands, sons, and male friends.
You see, many men think that Christianity is something just for women and children. This is proven by the fact that only 40 percent of people attending church in America are men. And it’s often because men think Jesus was soft and weak.
But Jesus was not some pale, emaciated guru. He was a man’s man. His strength and command captivated the hearts of grown men who followed him. On one occasion in Scripture, when Jesus saw the hypocrisy of the religious worship of his day, he took a whip and drove out the money changers. And he did it in the presence of a Roman guard. That’s no weakling!
If Christianity isn’t muscular enough for you, then you haven’t met Jesus as he really is. He doesn’t want to weaken you, he wants to strengthen and refine you.
Listen! It doesn’t take much of a man to follow Jesus… but it will take all the man that you are. Give Jesus your life today and live full-out, full-throttle for him.
IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH OF A MAN TO FOLLOW JESUS,
BUT IT WILL TAKE ALL THE MAN THAT YOUR ARE.
