Extras from the 33 Series

The 33 Series has showed us a lot about what it means to be a man of God.  Most importantly, that becoming a man of God requires courage, and that we need to unlearn a lot about what we learned growing up.  The four faces of manhood, (Warrior, King, Lover, Friend) require that we learn how to connect the emotional side of our brain to the intellectual side of our brain.  In other words, we must learn to process  emotions and events before they end in anger. For MOST men, ALL emotions end in anger.   For others, we just simply shut down and detach from the conflict.  The common thought it that if I refuse to feel, then I can’t get hurt.  That is effective and it works…until it doesn’t. When these strategies don’t work, then we leave a wake of destruction in our path.

Make no mistake, to change course requires courage, determination and a Savior.  To change course and leave a legacy requires that we “Be a Man.”  Consider the following video and reflect on your own life.  Is this an accurate starting point to becoming a man of God?
