Fight Club, Part 2

God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19

Hey Guys, I have a question for you... How is your life lining up to this verse? God is commenting on how He can be counted on, and uses men as an example of how He doesn't do it! Men can be dishonest; can vacillate; can renege on their word; and not keep promises... wow, that's pretty heavy. But the good news is we were created in His Image so we can grow up to be like Him!

That is what our 4th Saturday IronMens meeting is all about! It's about growing up into the Image of Christ because as Christian men we are called men, destine to greatness men, purposeful men, and gallant men!

Can I just be bold and say - that you need other brothers to help you get from point A to point Z in your life... Listen, no one can attain greatness without the right key relationships in their life, why do we think we are any different! Do you have committed friendships in your life! We all need someone we can look up to and someone who looks up to you? We need these friendships if we are serious about attaining to what God has called us to.

Are there Christian men with whom you are fully comfortable admitting your struggles? If not why not? God has never asked us to isolate our lives but connect with other brothers for the value added strength that it gives. It's the enemy that wants to divide us and isolate us, so he can pick us off... Together we are stronger, and that is just the way it is!

Don't allow anything to distract you from connecting with your “band of brothers”! See you at Fight Club this Saturday!

Peace, Karl
