They want a submission that is Dr. Tony Evans is being a godly leader requires a willingness to follow God. Maybe some of the rebellious some of the rebellion. Jesus celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative, if you are interested in flying up Lane or performing surgery. You go to flight school or medical school. But where do men go to learn to be godly men. That's Dr. Evan subject today as he talked about why men need to seek guidance from the word of God. Let's join him in the ministry. Timothy reasonably young pastor, mid 30s, early 40s perhaps who was the use of contemporary nomenclature. The senior pastor at Ephesus Bible Fellowship makes an overarching statement in first Timothy, that is to govern everything else that he does. He says in chapter 3 verses 14 and 15. I am writing these things to you hoping to come to you before long, but in case I am delayed I write so that you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God and the support of the true Paul writes this young pastor and I will write you to tell you how the church is supposed to work. I don't want to go downtown to get your instructions, I don't want you to go to the marketplace to get your instructions about what you owe to the various clubs to get you unstructured. I am writing you to tell you how the church of the living God is supposed to function. So you get your instructions on the church from the word of God which is the ground and pillar of the troops. One of the things you see in this is what Paul is alluding to these mammoth pillows and Ephesus that what the holdup structures.
He says the church is the ground and, of the truth. It it's supposed to hold the truth no matter what the culture is, no matter what's popular, no matter what the in thing to do, no matter what is politically correct, no matter what is popular around town all consequential to the truth and the job of the church is the holdup the truth not satisfy the culture job of the church is the holdup God standard not make everybody feel good or not make you popular necessarily in so we have this issue of men, and it is addressed here and other places.
But we would use this as our popular reference point to speak the truth about men in general, but specifically men in the church.
One thing is clear in Scripture when men relinquish their roles.
They have opened the door for the devil. The role of the church is to call men to their biblical roles as men to be reminded from God's definition. What is what a man is supposed to be a weatherman to seek to become job of the church of course is to instruct everybody but particularly men. There's a reason for that. What we are calling for what Paul is calling for what the word of God is calling for his permission to reclaim their divinely ordained roles not just any row not this is a sign about susceptible charges to reinforce a man of their divinely ordained roles.
He says in chapter 2 verse eight. Therefore, I want to pray in every place, lifting up holy hands without wrath and dissension.
We always talk about males because of the workmen and because of the fact he contrasted with women in verse nine, the first thing that men ought to be doing is bleeding out in prayer. Some of the church here says what I want what I want is I want and then he says in chapter 2 verse eight in every place to pray the charges to equipment called into prayer also called in the past that is shepherding.
They should know what Mr. you are a shepherd, your pastor of a family that comes a church to church to find out what God has to say, so we can start back to his family around the dinner table icons in the Bible that would send his wife and family. 20. Well good reason that that was an inconceivable thought. Don't go I'll feel like going the death that wasn't incomplete because he understood his role as pastor spiritually that his job was to try out for anything to talk about because God gives me a sermon for Sunday so you can use it for Monday madness so you can wait till next week same time think patient says the men are supposed to do that she should be able to ask because you are the shepherd of your house that your managing that you are holding that responsibility you are owning that role. Now let's go deeper with this is you asked me to first rent is 11 talk about the church you like to church.
Karen first Corinthians 11 and this principle is staggering and its implication for men and for ladies been over this verse first three before that look at it again.
What I want you to understand verse 311 that Christ is the head of every man and the man is the hand of a woman. Not all women man is the head of a woman and God is the head of Christ. So this principle operates in the Trinity, God is the antichrist Christ is the head of every man.
The man is the head of a woman. The issue is hand given the porch headship. Jesus promised when Adam and Eve fell that the sale of the woman would cross the head of the serpent in Genesis 313 when you crush the head of the serpent presses headship crushes will there is a history created by God that even Jesus can get out of it says God is the head of Christ, yet Christ is equal to God. She cries out VISIBILITY, but when it comes to functionality when it comes to implementation. Christ is under God, Christ, is it an absence of God and function.
This is not an quest to logical essence, it is a question of the day to day function. That's why the Bible says a man must ask is there in first Peter 37 to be treated as an equal, not as a instantly she's not your daughter but at the same time that she has an equal abuse. My thoughts are just skills and talents. There is a God flows in history any flows based on hardship logs through Christ.
Christ is all over. Every man here is where the first problem is because many Christian men don't have Christ over them.
They want to a submission that they refuse the model that says my wife won't submit to me that she see you submitting to so she can see what submission look like. Thanks Jason for the submission you're requiring because Christ is over. Every man that's why you it's probably the first wanted to find out what Christ expects of you because you submitted to give up already.
The charts to find out what Christ expects of you as a man, so that you can submit the shaken model the submission that you seeing from you in conformance nobodies nobody Dr. Bonsall Jesus buddies about his independence… To leadership. Jesus was a leader on the so here's what I want to ask every man is he who wins you answer in the church of the living God, to whom do you even positioning yourself. So maybe some of the rebellion that you are experiencing in the home to some of the rebellion that Jesus is experiencing from you goes onto creation.
Verse 84 man does not originate from woman, but woman from God took a rib out of Adam's side in the created woman. She originated from him. He's going back to there is an auto and then he lays one out for you ladies that a bombshell verse 10.
Therefore, the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head because of the Angels. The reason why you have to stay in line in the church, he says, is because of the Angels was Angels got to do with this.
I have a full-time job in St. John chapter 1 Jesus tells us. I know you'll see Angels going up and down the Son of Man. What are angels that God's post office that God's delivery boys that God's delivery system.
Not like when Jacobs wants to do someone sends an angel. Angels means messengers the messenger service whose job it is to carry front found but the angel only pathology of the impact if headship is operating properly. If headship is not operating properly. Then the angel so if you are blocking prayer and being so late is legitimately rebelling against your mom's been then your blocking.answering your prints you may be delighted.answering your plans because your operating on man you could be blocking it because you're not operating on the Christ. So it's keeping you because of the messenger service you need the church to make sure that things are in alignment so that God is free to respond with his messenger service.

Here's Dr. Evans with more of today's message Jewish father understood the importance of the temple.
The church, the first one up in the morning but went I grew up in no without much like many of you father got to work sometimes and go to work because each is a longshoreman and you do that by what they call orders you had to be called in when the boat was coming inch to unload the boat as the stevedore longshoreman since the time he got saved. I cannot remember one time and asking me, do you feel like going to church.
I'm trying to remember, but I can't remember one time when I got the church was a lie as a llama manager I'm sick. Oh I feel so bad I wasn't sick because as the house. Worship was never an option vote fathers and I want to make my kids go to church.
You make him go to school you make him go to schools because you want them to become something inconceivable nor did he ever send us to church what he stable standards of the work she would never send us what he stable.
That was inconceivable because a man of the kingdom, who is also a man of the church understands that that is his role as head to leading the worship of his family as Joshua put in Joshua 2450. As for me and which brings a final thought of you about the real reason why many different church. These men provide spiritual protection, notice what he says again the first of the two. He says, verse 14, and it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.
In other words, she got tricked she got duped he went in with his eyes wide open for me what he was doing his job as a transfer to truth which is what he did to me that's what he could tell Satan what the devil said, because Adam transferred to her.
Then he went passive owners is called the silence of God and that the devil to the rapine, she talked to him.
They all get together at each other and all hell breaks loose. Then God says this my sister went to sleep like this.
But God said, he says that Adam and John 73, because you listen to your wife the man's publicist was absolutely she's a partner unless what you're listening to contradicts your wants what you hear from her contradicts what you're hearing from him. You no longer to listen to, but this is true as long as what USA agrees with you. But what does she have a head because you listen to far too many to the devil and bring it home to the home even bring in hopes listen to the policy and bring it home. He says he did not provide spiritual role of guarding the God of protection the job of the church is to equip men to guard the garden from the intruder. Generational boys today who Michael make it the manhood that may make it physically dangle make it all of us have three words you got mail me for mail hood is plumbing in his boyhood boy because a boy is responsible and dependent mommy and daddy to take him.
She's not independently responsible is euthymic to be able to provide for himself because he's just a boy, now 20, 20 to 30-year-old boy got a problem with 30-year-old boys building for your boy off five your boy a 10-year-old boy explained a 15-year-old boy just will be 30-year-old boy. Far too many off tied to boyhood.
That's why don't send a woman out to work but I stay home to provide laugh is boyhood. He says in chapter 5 he says it is about a man who does not provide for anybody stays home should be far you in his manhood kingdom man is a person who exercises authority and responsibility under exercises authority naming these names things and he bears the responsibility.

There are times when the path ahead of us may look impassable, but tomorrow Dr. Evans will remind us how God has established a record of helping his children successfully navigate treacherous ways. Right now though he's back with this closing illustration. The central position on the football team as the port he is the central position the most value positions the highest paid position because he is the seat is the least he calls the play he rallies the troops consistently connect different quarterbacks have different personalities. Some of the big round rock eyes is not wrong wrong guys but ticket business with the use of most quarterbacks got the 123.
He gets the ball he fades back and all of a sudden he is under attack. The linemen are coming to human there's linebackers off defensive backs who are blitzing some will be coming that he can sleep all those will be coming on his blindside that he cannot see he should do his best to avoid being tackled to avoid being thrown back should do his best, but sometimes it can get away sometimes it can run fast enough or too much attack, but because he is the leader must be willing to take the must be willing to get sat must be willing to be phone down the line the scrimmage losses now that will be times if it's going to get back but hey you and where you get Donald all cause that's what you call don't want to be in the back you're not willing to take in the alternative, with Dr. Tony Evans is brought to you by the celebrating 40 years of faithfulness, thanks to the generous contributions of listeners like you
