Not by Might nor by Power, A Parakaleo Disciple

On the second Monday in September, a group of men began meeting to encourage and hold one another accountable on truth and mindset. As men of Humility, Integrity, Truth, Obedience, and Prayer, these men lay down their egos, their lies, and their fears each week to move past the surface and to cultivate a relationship with God and each other. I call this group…

An Exclusive Relationship, which all are Welcome

When I say the word “dwell” what comes to your mind immediately? Is it to think and focus anxiously? To speak anxiously? If so, your environment may have mentally conditioned you to a negative definition of a positive word. When God inspired the words of Psalm 91:1 He was sharing about a positive experience with a relationship of trust and focus on Him. Is Christianity, therefore, exclusive and limited in any fashion?

Men, Why We Get Angry

The day is going well; we have a good sense this is going to be a great day, then out of nowhere, we find the irritation of a comment, a moment, a person setting us off. Immediately, we turn to blame, criticism and complaining. What is it that’s upsetting us? Are we genuinely bothered by the fact that our teenage son or daughter have eaten the special snack?

I was about to begin the most significant journey I’ve ever taken. I was starting a father, and becoming a Dad.

Is [ Blank ] your First Choice or Last Resort?

OK, there I am praying for an opportunity to speak to my son and God was lining them up. But while we have a God who desires to give us a full life of joy, we have an enemy who desires to steal that joy.

Today’s Sunday Coach Connect considers the importance of fellowship and our biblical responsibilities as men.
