For Mother’s Day, which CrossView Church called Woman’s Day, we celebrated our women – mothers, sisters, daughters by preaching to the men on who they ought to be as men. You can listen to it here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/1k5r9q – There is no video for this sermon.
The outline was short and simple from Ephesians 5:25-27 and 6:4
I opened with the crisis of extended adolescence into the late thirties for too many men. Then I asked the questions that are so basic yet so cloudy in people’s minds: (1) What makes a man a man and not a woman? (2) When does a boy become a man?
Then we looked at Ephesians 5:25-27 and 6:4.
- Love like Christ (initiate and sacrifice)
- Love to make holy (the goal is holiness, the tool is the Word)
- Lead with understanding and effectiveness (don’t stir up to anger; apply the Word to specific situations)
