We Need Iron Men of Faith!

We give kudos to sports athletes for their ability to play their sport under adverse conditions and injury! Bret Favre was dubbed the iron man of football because he would not be pulled out of a game injured or not, impressive!

Men how about us in our service to Christ? Where are our iron men for Jesus? For us it seems, it does not take much for us to sit the bench rather than stay in the game!  We so easily want to leave the game when the biggest hurdles come our way, or we are hurt or injured!

When will we stand up and be counted in a world that wants to challenge our faith? We need to have iron men of faith, men willing to stand no matter what the cost as we have such a cloud of witnesses as examples!

We need Joshua's, we need Caleb's, we need most of all to set an example, and let people see in us the greatest iron man of all Jesus! Ok men it's not only about the bike you ride, ministry you are in, being a veteran, or a supporter of veterans or any other thing!

It is how you stand in the gap when things go wrong, or not your way! How you stand up to the evil that is coming at you and your families! It's no more making excuse how you cannot serve, stand up and be counted, when it counts!

 It's coming along side your Pastor and praying for them, holding their hands up as Aaron and Hur did for Moses! It's asking them what you can do to serve the church better and more, not making the excuse you do enough!

If men, we did enough the church would be full of men leading the way instead of our gals doing it all!! God called us to lead the way by example and we have shrunk back from the task! It's time now to stand up more than ever before and be the men called us to be, not what we think we ought to be!

Be iron men for Jesus, let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and give God the glory!!

Joshua 24:15English Standard Version (ESV)
15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lordchoose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
