Although my doctor told me you suitors are future depends on men finding the strength godly leaders. A man named as times. Overall, this is the alternative, Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas and president of the urban alternative men grow up in a series of babyhood, boyhood manhood, making it all the way to biblical manhood takes a certain kind of growing.
Dr. Evans talked about today must join the struggle today in every of our lives will fail. All males to become as God has defined five gives the man who I here today starting with me but applying to all freight rate that every man needs to understand every male needs to understand every female needs to expect if you're going to be God's man and experience God's involvement in your world. So about here. First of all and say I am not seeking to be cultural. I am not seeking to be convenient and I'm not seeking to win friends.
My job is to tell you what God says and what God thinks of the series is where you met Adam anywhere Adam, where, why God created man because he would be the one God will be looking to first Abraham is now in the vicinity of Solomon became cultural as you and I are living in today can culture for all three of the same reasons given three things verse 19 I have chosen him.
I have chosen him. The first thing is to understand you been drafted. You watch the NFL draft the NBA draft when you draft a player's position you wanted, you got all you want to take up you got a purpose for drafting him for the improvement of your team. Every man has been created as the man as a draftee of God because he got a posting want you to fulfill any purpose he wants you to accomplish. I have chosen you in the midst of this decay in the midst of this culture will be a man. I've selected him some of the things God wants to do. We gave you because he can't find the first thing every male needs to understand is that you have a divinely orchestrated reason for your manhood that I know the culture wants to give you a whole bunch of reasons for your manhood. But God says will not manhood your manhood manhood something God says and that's why I chose, so if a male is living his life never discovering what God wants out of his life.
He is a misguided mail. So he makes up his own rules along the way he makes up the rule that is passage of point makes up the rules. That is, the media gives him and he finds himself in all kind of current ways because he is going to work at 14 to get drafted. When a man accepts Jesus Christ as his personal savior. Drafted into the purpose of God. But unfortunately, many men will even go to church. Don't even care to know the purpose of God and therefore they live distracted in the purposes of culture. Second, he says in verse 19, so that okay all the men what you say so that okay another words I chose, and that is what I want to do, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord and to do righteousness and just okay so let me let me clarify a miss understand the misunderstanding. If that is the woman's job to raise the children that may come from a culture that doesn't come from Scripture says I command to raise the children and to teach them righteousness and justice. Ephesians 64 have fathers raise your children in the Bible. It is the job of the man to raise the children. Not one.
The Scripture says that Charles Jim and how well you to raise and train and command his children after him.
The reason why we've got chaos with kids is that it can be for autism. Not a lost generation that the product of a lost of abandoned men who can tell you everything about football and nothing about Scripture meant "statistics but can quote a verse ever missed a practice or a game, but to get the kids up to go to church because everything is out of whack. But at the same time. They say I want God to God to do that you can get so bad so that because if we going to fix the culture.
He says we can skip the family to fix the culture of the White House and you can control your house and what you teach them righteousness and justice.
Righteousness is your vertical standing before God as you walk with God that's living to please God setting a spiritual standard in the home that that everybody knows about that that is not vague. This is how we rolled up in here uppity as Joshua said in Joshua 20 4/15. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord everybody in your family. I ought to know. We serve God in this house and here's how we do it. Another words, divine guidelines are established by dad by the father.
If you are a father you set the righteous standard. This is right.
This is wrong, God said so. He told me to teach you. So therefore, let's review the rules of this house because God has chosen me to set that something committees to teach justice, righteousness is obedient walk with God.
Justice is your equitable treatment of man is how you deal with people and what is really problem the wife because daddy had fixed it with the kids so we get generationally gets transferred. Kids don't come out the will prejudice kids don't come out the warm racist kids don't come up with one warm-up rejecting people because of the color of skin know some folks have trained them in and that started in the home, and because we didn't train our kids with Martin Luther King statement, the judge people by the content of the character and not the color of their skin. They pick up all the things they here in the house and the things in the culture and they replicated. If you can't fix it at home.
Don't think you will fix it in the street. He says you are to teach them justice.
How to be equitable. How you treat people how to respect people are people look for other people you teach them that that's about to come in the house so he says this is the responsibility of the father.
So if you can make the practices if you can talk about fantasy football. You can talk about the status of this team that you start looking take time out to have devotions, you certainly can take time out to that memory verses.
You certainly can take time out to play with them at bedtime, and that made me that maybe recording the show and looking at it later because you got to be dad first got to be dad and husband first try to look at that show right now the technology had set it up so I can look at it later because right now I come home from work. My second job. This is what God says this is what God wants.
And far too many men are handing their children.
The ticket praise God for the women care what the ticket but far too many are handing them a ticket to fail. How is that daughter going to know what kind of man she should marry her. She got to see from her dad hear from her dad the standard to judge the men in her life that boys know how to treat a woman if he sees you cussing at your wife screaming at your wife, that your wife abusing you what was going on. No how to treat her like a lady next dad's job is a lot on us as well blame God, not me sexually of all, that's fine. Says he made man the stronger vessel because you should be able to bear more weight to the nature of the foundation is not pretty.
It is, is how much weight can how nice it looked. You looking at foundation you just want to know if it sounds as if it cracked there's 1/3 key principal Dr. Evans wants to tell us about back to do that in just a moment.

Here's Tony. So the first thing is, there is a purpose.
There is a destiny for there is a responsibility of discipline and discipleship for man in the third. At the end of verse 19 he says, so that I may bring upon Abraham what I have promised to him and he promised Abraham was this what this menu, he says, verse 18. I will make him a great nation.
I will make him a mighty nation and fat through him. Everybody else will be better. Through him all the nations of the earth will be blessed.
So let me tell all the minis it's okay to want to be great. In fact, your sinning if you don't want to be great greatness is in to the beginning of man. 12 disciples came to Jesus one day in a circle will be the greatest in the kingdom to argue about what would be great if you want to be great if you just have to go about it the right way to God is not against greatness as long as that greatness is under his rule and out of relationship with him after one segment one amendment one await you because of building and he wanted. I guess okay want to be great to have a great and mighty nation free.
That is the God's will bring the fight to get it that God is going in circumstances when the relationship with him. Submitted authority walking with him, prioritizing him for filling my responsibilities to those were in my scope of influence.
Let me show you something else. In chapter 17 chapter 17 talk about the scope of influence. It says in verse 26 and the very same day Abraham was circumcising his son all the men of this household who were born in this house or bought with money from a foreigner were circumcised with it only took a if any man in the center of the class what you think when you show a real manner that one of the crap that I see somebody taking a stand on the God just another cultural God want you to be a man of influence want you to be great. You know when a lion roars and he really wants to make a statement that role can be heard five marks. I will miss being here this is my territory open up in here and I want to serve 5 miles away is my space. I will miss Jesus is called, the lion of the tribe of Judah. He knows how to tomatoes not going to men who don't mind long. This is my space is not because it's been given to me by Almighty God and I am already has time to raw. To be great, under God, for God betterment of everybody authority and responsibility. You think of Tom Brady or Ray Lewis somebody complained you think a focal a great when they played. You'll just want to just pass through here, you want to make what ever Mark God has for you on the world that he gives you ladies.
Your job is to make it easy for him to do the work against his will challenge it as long as it is unrighteous will ungodly will encourage them to be all that God has created them to be all that God has given you so we can become what God expects of him to become Jesse Owens, 1936 is a hostile environment hostile environment. Germany sorriest the Germans were concerned because that's how they looked on him.
The black race so system to run and we come out here and watch the monkey in every direction. Jesse Owens looks there were crowds of people who were against but he decided to roll notice on Germany, you got the deal with me you don't like me you don't think much you hate me against may come from another kingdom come from the United States of America and represent that kingdom in this chaos, and it demonstrated in the kingdom of Germany.
