Strong: The True Man

Manhood is a beauty and glory all its own. See what you've been missing.

Scripture says a man fights. Neh. 4:14 / 2 Tim. 4:7 / Eph. 6:11-12

Are you ready to be a true man? The foremost command in the Bible to men is to “be strong.” What does that mean for us? Why did God initiate a physical fight with Jacob? Why did God call David “a man after his own heart”? Why did Moses say that God was a “man of war”? Why did God let so much suffering befall Job, Elijah, and Jonah? Why does Paul tell the men in the Church to “act like men and be strong”?

Gentle: The True Woman

The apostle Peter taught women about "the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious." What does God mean by that?

Scripture says a woman mothers children.  Gen. 3:20 / 1 Cor. 11:11-12 / 1 Tim. 2:15

This is why gentleness is so crucial. Gentleness doesn’t infer an absence of strength any more than the call to men to be strong infers an absence of meekness. These two simple words to men and women are the entry points by which men and women embark on the great mystery and wonder that is manhood and womanhood. Obedience is key because neither come naturally to us in our fallen state, and neither are fully comprehensible for they are rooted in eternity and God himself. Like all of God’s creation they are meant to invoke wonder and awe. By calling men to strength, a man’s soul will be enlivened, fortified, and built up in a holy joy. By calling women to gentleness a women’s soul will be enlivened, brightened, and made dazzling with an imperishable beauty.
