Minute with Mike / May 2018
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect… 1 Peter 3:15
I see growing interest among men in the area of apologetics. As culture becomes more hostile toward Biblical Christianity there are fewer places for cultural Christians to hide.
Sooner or later, every man will have to take a stand on the critical issues of the day.
It may come when your son tells you about a friend who ‘feels like a girl’. It may come when your young daughter asked (like mine did when she was 5 and we were listening to Christian radio in the car…) “Daddy, what is abortion?” It may come when your son comes home from school and says, “Daddy, we don’t believe in evolution do we? That’s what the teacher talked about today.”
The opportunities come at unexpected times… and these are the easy ones that come with folks who love you. You’ll have similar moments in less friendly environments. Every one of us needs to prepare. We need to live in the Word. But we also need to take advantage of resources and opportunities to prepare for these moments.
It’s what men do… they anticipate and prepare for unexpected battles.
We’re happy to partner with men and ministries to help men get ready for those moments. Your partnership and prayers help Noble Warriors connect men with great resources AND encouragement to take a stand! Thank you!
Let’s pray together for more men to be equipped for the battle and to stand firm when challenged!
