The month of June is MEN’S MONTH at GCBC. We focus on men being involved in the ministry and the necessity of strengthening our relationship with God and our families. For some reason, there is a belief among some that “church ain’t a man’s thang”. This is a lie of the devil. From the beginning God entrusted man with His Word. Whatever has happened to convince men that church is not for them, our job is to destroy that lie, teach the truth, and restore men to their rightful place in God.
We thank the men who are involved in the ministry of GCBC. We are fortunate to have men involved in almost all the ministries of our church. And for those who are not involved, you are encouraged to serve in a ministry. We need more people to do all God has for us to do. So we celebrate you and your contribution.
We also celebrate the men in our background who made us the men we are. It might have been your father, a grandfather, an uncle or just a positive role model who impressed you, or took interest in you. In any case, none of us got to be who we are on our own. We’re taking this time to reflect on those powerful male influences in our background and the contribution they made in helping to make us the men we are.
Often we become so concerned about how challenging our lives are, we fail to think about what a hard time they had. And yet, they took time to direct us, to pour into us so we would have a positive and constructive life.
We thank God for them. If they’re still living, tell them thanks and share with them what they mean to you. Bring them to church and introduce them to us. If they have passed away, thank God for their life & lasting contribution.
Most of all, be the man you can be in Christ. And thank God for those men on whose shoulders we stand.
