There is a desperate cry being made to the missing segment of society that is blatantly absent from the House of God. What ever happened to the time when a man would actually lead his family in praise and worship? It appears that a large portion of the male population has become overly enthralled with attaining the finite “rewards” of this life as opposed to the incorruptible inheritance that awaits those who seek the Lord.

I praise God for all the women who fill today’s church, and are raising our families; however, we need a stabilizing male presence in our sanctuaries or this generation may not only be seduced by apostasy (rejection of beliefs), but many will be lost to it. That may lead us to becoming devoid of morality, direction, and hope. How can we begin to rectify this downward spiraling trend?

It’s time for men to love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind; …and to love your neighbor as yourself (Mat. 22:37-40).”

It’s time for men to not only love God, but to project His Spirit of “Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control (Ga. 5:22).”

It’s time for men to act as stated in Eph. 1:4, “according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.

It’s time for men to be thou strong and very courageous…that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest (Jsh. 1:7).” 
 Hebrew 10:24-25 has an important message that I would like to inculcate (impress) on the male populace: “consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together…”

TO ALL THE MALE READERS, PLEASE JOIN THE WOMEN, AND FIND YOUR WAY BACK TO CHURCH, because…

 It’s time for all of us to

M A N   U P !
