Every Christian male should ask himself this question: What makes me a man? More importantly, what makes me a godly man? If a man does not know who he is, he will not be all he can be in Christ Jesus. The Christian male has to understand that he can only define himself based upon biblical standards. This is because culture and Christianity have varying viewpoints about what makes one a “man.” The Christian male, then, has to learn to define his manhood in terms of his relationship with Christ (righteousness and character), rather than by the culture (which focuses mostly on external traits -strength, money, positions and titles.)
The word stature simply means the degree of development of a person or the intellectual or moral greatness. It is our desire to become and develop as Men that know the God-given “positions” destined for our lives and be Great in just that. In Genesis, God asked Adam, Where art thou? Not because he didn’t know where Adam was, but so that Adam would realize and confess that he was not in the Position that God desire and designed him to be in. It is high time that we as men, discover that place, and Stand Firm as a statue in position in our Homes, Churches, Jobs, and Communities.
Our Goal as an Organization is to:
Reflects Christ’s image. As Adam was made in God’s image, the Christian man has to be made in Christ’s image. We will reflect the characteristics of Christ. (Romans 8:29)
Be a man full of wisdom and integrity. M.O.S will not be a fool. We will not lack spiritual wisdom and insight. We will be full of faith. (Acts 6:3a)
Be an example of the believers in this world. M.O.S will set an example that others can follow. We will represent the Christian faith well to the world. (I Timothy 4:12b)
Lead our homes in the worship of God. One of the qualifications for a bishop was to have his home in order. This same quality will be in the Men of Stature. (I Timothy 3:4)
We follow the example that Christ set. Paul exhorted the Corinthians to follow his example as he followed Christ. This will be the same desire of the Men of Stature. We will only want others to emulate us, as we follow Christ. (I Corinthians 11:1)
We are men of prayer. In the Old Testament, men offered the most powerful prayers. Men have a responsibility to weep and mourn and intercede for others also. (Ephesians 6:18)
Be student of the Word of God. Men of Statue will have a desire to know God’s word. We will exhibit personal study of the Word, in order to understand the foundational beliefs of the Christian faith. (II Timothy 2:15)
Man where art Thou?
Let us Discover where we are! Aftersuch determine if this the place/position that God has designed us to be in! If so be like a tree planted by waters and don’t move,but if not, let us seek God like never before and find, our Place in him and Live a life driven by Purpose. For what does it profit a man to gain his life and loose his soul! Furthermore, we are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor or value, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
When we work out of function and fail to fulfill our purpose we lose our value to God. In a nut shell, when we purchase an item or a good, when depend on that merchandise to work as it should. When Jesus purchased our redemption, he did so, that we would no longer be condemned to death, but Live and live on Purpose.
MEN Where art Thou?
Let’s get busy with our Purpose!
