Man is a Worshiping Soldier

As we move, within our model, from the center to the 3 secondary roles, you’ll notice a few things.  First, we will discuss how each of these 3 secondary roles relate to the core role of worshipper.  That’s important because if any of these become unmoored from the center, then not only is our understandingContinue reading “Man is a Worshiping Soldier”

The Image of God and Real Masculinity

In the last post, we saw three things that help us understand masculinity: that God is real, that He created out of love and not out of need, and that He is intentional.  We saw that those things shape what a real man is and does.  Let’s dig into three others now. God remains involvedContinue reading “The Image of God and Real Masculinity”

Manhood in light of a real, intentional, and loving God

I ended the last post with this statement, attempting to clarify what the God of the Bible is like in contrast to the gods of this world, highlighting 6 things about the Triune God. However, if I believe in the God of Christianity, the Triune God, I have a God that is altogether different.  HeContinue reading “Manhood in light of a real, intentional, and loving God”

The Core Characteristic of Manhood

Welcome back to this series on Manhood.  Today we’re looking at the CORE CHARACTERISTIC of Manhood.  This is central.  Everything else flows from it.  Before we dig in, I wanted to let you know (if you didn’t) about David Murray’s Christian Man Academy.  David blogs over at Head Heart Hand, and this new undertaking, I’mContinue reading “The Core Characteristic of Manhood”

What is Holiness?

I think the puritans do such a better job of answering this question: What is holiness?  Their answer may surprise you.  We often think of the Puritans as stuffy, no-fun-allowed sort of folk.  That’s unfortunate.  Surely some of them were that way, just like some of us are, but the best Puritans actually made pleasureContinue reading “What is Holiness?”

The Love of God and our Feelings

Here we are at the end of our blog series on Psalm 45.  I hope it’s blessed you.  If you haven’t, be sure to read those because they’ve been leading us to this point.  We just found out that because of the love of King Jesus for us, His Bride, we are adorned.  We areContinue reading “The Love of God and our Feelings”

Church, get ready to blush…

In our previous posts we’ve seen The Sons of Korah (SoK), men who deserved death but had reserved mercy wrote Psalm 45 a song to the King Deep affection that was being communicated to the King, in fact, it is a love song, with words that only a lover would use. That the King inContinue reading “Church, get ready to blush…”

Marvelous Grace & Beautiful Wrath

In our previous posts we’ve seen The Sons of Korah (SoK), men who deserved death but had reserved mercy wrote Psalm 45 a song to the King Deep affection that was being communicated to the King, in fact, it is a love song, with words that only a lover would use.

The King Smells like a Corpse

Well, we’re back in Psalm 45.  In previous 2 posts, we discovered that the Sons of Korah, these dead men walking, are writing this Psalm as a love song to the King.  Today, I want to look a little closer and try to figure out who this King is.  Verse 2-5 says this: 2 YouContinue reading “The King Smells like a Corpse”

Psalm 45 – A Love Song Written by Dead Men

Friends, I hope you’re 2019 is off to a grand start.  And what better way to start the blog year than discussing a Royal Psalm.  Of course, this isn’t just any Royal Psalm.  Yes, the King is front and center like the other Royal Psalms, but Psalm 45 differs markedly in terms of author, tone,Continue reading “Psalm 45 – A Love Song Written by Dead Men”
