I’ve been thinking about what we should study during our Men of Steel gatherings on Saturdays, so here is what I would like propose:
Perhaps you have heard of the Promise Keepers: It might be old for some of you or totally brand new concept for others, but I love what they stand for. The core beliefs of the Promise Keepers, outlined in the Seven Promises, consist of the following:
- A Promise Keeper is committed to honoring Jesus Christ through worship, prayer and obedience to God’s Word in the power of the Holy Spirit.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to pursuing vital relationships with a few other men, understanding that he needs brothers to help him keep his promises.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical and sexual purity.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to building strong marriages and families through love, protection and Biblical values.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to supporting the mission of his church by honoring and praying for his pastor and by actively giving his time and resources.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to reaching beyond any racial and denominational barriers to demonstrate the power of Biblical unity.
- A Promise Keeper is committed to influencing his world, being obedient to the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).
The outline for our getting together includes these topics:
- A man and his God
- Setting a foundation – worship
- God’s Word
- A man and his mentors
- The mandate
- The relationships
- A man and his integrity
- Spiritual purity
- Living in a gray world
- Sexual purity
- A man and his family
- Secrets of a happy marriage
- Priorities of fathering
- A man and his church
- Honoring your pastor
- The man God’s seeks
- A man and his brothers
- Call to unity
- Talking next steps
- A man and his world
- The greatest power ever known
- The Great Commission
Join me for fresh coffee, new friends, renewed commitment, and information to help you become a better man, husband and father, this Saturday, March 11 at 7:30 in the church Welcome Center.
