Happy Father's Day! HHT kicks off our series examining Biblical manhood. Manhood is in crisis - a crisis of identity. How did we get here? How do we get out? And where do we go? In Part 1 we look at the importance of our DIRECTION and the freedom of DOCTRINE. We address the problem facing manhood in our culture and point toward the solution.
The Bible tells believers, that we are not merely reflectors of the light of Christ, but that we are light. Of course, not one drop of that light comes from us; it's all from Christ. And the Apostle Paul instructs believers on what it means to live in the light. He makes his point with a positive directive, then a warning and finally a stirring charge.
The Christian life is evidenced by the characteristic of Christ manifested. Cultural conformity undermines our credibility and draws us away from the cross. When Christians are imitators of GOD, the life we live takes on the characteristics of Jesus.
