Spiritual A, B, C: Rules For Men

Spiritual A, B, C: Rules For Men

Are you living a life outside God’s spiritual A,B,C’s; Accountability, Boundaries, & Consequences
 
If so, you may still be wondering why your life continues to be one struggle after the next. No matter how hard or bad you want to change, you don’t.
 
It’s true that the path to hell is paved with good intentions. Intending to do something good doesn’t bring healing or change. It only brings more hurt and failure.
 
Men, we’re naturally resistant to limitations. We like to explore, push and look beyond. While these can be great characteristics, they cannot be what solely drives our life. Everyone needs structure.
 
If we want true, eternal life-winning change, we need to be accountable, respect established boundaries and understand that there are serious consequences to our actions.
 
My pastor, Joshua Melancon once told me, “God isn’t going to wink at your indiscretions anymore.”
 
That simple sentence pierced my spirit. I’d always assumed God would forgive me because I was a good guy. There comes a point where being a good guy and having good intentions doesn’t cut it.
 
Men, pray about these A-B-C’s and if you truly want to stop asking, “Why me?” and start living a strong, active life for Christ, then put them into practice.
 
Much Love / Much Respect,

Why Brick Breakers?

The Facebook post started it all. I felt God had given me the clear vision for a men’s outreach. He also provided the name, Brick Breakers. I quickly posted to explain why the name. The post went and continues to gain new brothers in Christ to the outreach.

The active post link is above, and the words in the post are also posted below. I’d appreciate you liking our community on Facebook and sharing it with your church and brothers in need.

Lead from the front,♥

Why Brick Breakers?

Joshua 6:1-27 is the story of Jericho. I think most men like this because the city’s walls come crashing down. It’s a powerful testimony and naturally seems like something men would enjoy doing. We do love smashing things as well as rebuilding them.

The truth is that no man had a hand in physically bringing the impenetrable walls to the ground. It was God’s plan and man’s obedience to His will that allowed the stunning visual.

This, like many of you, is my story. I spent years raging against my own walls of discipline, obedience and surrender. Never once did they come tumbling down, Instead, they thickened and grew taller around my heart.

It was God’s plan for me to wait on Him and His instruction, that eventually destroyed those internal, spiritual walls. But while I celebrated the salvation victory, I was caught off guard when those walls returned.

I came to understand I must break my bricks daily to prevent the walling off of emotions, empathy and love for others.

It doesn’t mean that I’m resistant or disobedient, but that I must lean on God daily to sustain me. This has taught me to believe even when I doubt, and to trust even when I’m concerned.

It’s why I knew the name, Brick Breakers was perfect for this outreach. If you’ll be honest with yourself, I know you’ll see bricks in your life that pile up quickly unless they’re broken on a daily basis.

Because you’ve got bricks doesn’t mean you’re out of God’s will. it means because you’re trusting God that He allows you to see those obstacles standing between you and God’s intended glory.

Share this site with your Brothers. Grab your spiritual prayer hammer, and start smashing.
