Your Calling

As men, we are called to work. We are to provide for ourselves, but above and beyond that, we are called to provide for our families. Sometimes, I find myself not wanting to work because I'd rather be doing something else or spending time with my wife. One thing that I have learned is that this is an issue of my attitudes and ultimately, an issue of my heart. I should find joy in the fact that I have a job and that I have a means to provide for my family. It is extremely easy to take this for granted. What if I could not find a sufficient paying job? God has certainly blessed us. He is faithful.

I want to encourage you to work and to work hard. Let this verse encourage you:

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." Colossians 3:23-24

If we are discouraged because of our work environment, we must stop working for our selfishness and work for our families and ultimately work as for the Lord. If we are discontent in our job situation, we must reevaluate our reasons for working. This is not just how "life" happens. Rather, this is what we are called to do in being men. We are called to work hard. Be diligent in your work.

Working hard does not make you a man. You are already a man, so work hard.

Make War (Video)

This is a video by Tedashii featuring Flame and John Piper. I have never been much into rap music, but this song is great. Honestly, I am glad that this video has the lyrics included because it is hard for me to keep up sometimes! Even more, I am glad that there are Christian rap artists that are preaching the Gospel. Such an encouragement! Anyway, hope you enjoy the video and I hope you are encouraged to make war against the sin in your life.

Can You See Heaven, Yet?

Often times, Christians lose sight of eternal life here and that which is yet to come. So, I want to recommend Phil Wickham's newest CD release, "Heaven and Earth." My wife got me the package deal for my birthday and it is absolutely amazing. Every single one Phil's CDs have been amazing and Gospel centered. I strongly encourage you to pick up this CD when it comes out or pre-order it as a package.

You will not be disappointed! I will write a review soon.
