Christian mission Dr. Tony Evans shares being a godly leader requires a willingness to follow God.

Maybe some of the rebellion. Some of the rebellion you this is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans father speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative if you are interested in flying up Lane forming surgery to 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 the ministry Timothy reasonably young pastor, mid 30s, early 40s perhaps who was the use of contemporary nomenclature of the senior pastor at Ephesus Bible Fellowship, and he 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 delaying.

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 he said 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 to go to the marketplace to get your instructions about what you owe to the various clubs to get you instruction, 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 in Ephesus that what the holdup structures. He says the church is the ground and, of the truth. It it's supposed to hold up the truth no matter what the culture thing 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 will 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 man to their biblical roles as men to be reminded from God's definition.

What is what a man is supposed to be a one-man order seek to become job of the church of course is to instruct everybody but particularly men. There's little reason for that. What we are calling for what Paul is calling for what the word of God is calling for is for men to reclaim their divinely ordained roles not just any row not this is a standalone, susceptible charges to reason for men their divinely ordained roles.

He says in chapter 2 verse eight. Therefore, I want men to pray in everyplace lifting up holy hands without wrath and dissension.

We know we talked about males because of the word minute because of the fact he contrasted with women in verse nine, the first thing that men ought to be doing is leaving out in prayer, the church leader says what I want what I want is I want men. He says in chapter 2 verse eight in everyplace to pray. The charges to equipment called into print is 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 comes to church to find out what God has to say, so we can start back to his family around the dinner table icons all in the Bible that would send his wife and family to church 20 well good reason that that was an inconceivable thought Iago I feel I go on the day that wasn't incomplete because he understood his role as pastor spiritually that his job was to transfer everything to talk about because God gives me a sermon for Sunday and so you can use it for Monday, not just so you can wait the mix. We think compensation and he says the men are supposed to do that you should be able to ask because you are the shepherd of your house that your managing that you are holding that responsibility your owning that role. Now let's go deeper with this method you asked me to first rent is 11 talk about the church he likes 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 three freshman 11 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 hand 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 saying of the woman would cross the hand of the serpent in Genesis 315 crush the head of the serpent presses headship crushes will there is a history created by God. Even Jesus can get out of it says God is the head of Christ, yet Christ is equal to God. Christ has all the attributes of deity, but when it comes to functionality when it comes to implementation. Christ is under God. Christ is God and absence under God and function. This is not an illogical essence is a question of the day-to-day function. That's why the Bible says a man must live as his hair in first Peter 37 to be treated as an equal, not as a theory. She's not your daughter but at the same time that she has an equal abuse against her skills and talents. There is a God flows in history any flows based on hardship, 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 mention that they refuse the model then says my wife won't submit to me that she see you submitting to so she can see what submission or look like. Thanks J since 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 you the chance to find out what Christ expects of you as a man, so that you can submit the Michigan model the submission that you seeing from you in conformance nobodies nobody Dr. Bonsall thinking Jesus buddies about his independence… To leadership. Jesus was a leader under authority. So here's what I want to ask every man is he who wins you answer in the church of the living God told you even positioning yourself. So maybe some of the rebellion that you are experiencing in the home. Some of the rebellion that Jesus is experiencing from you goes on to creation.

Verse 84 man does not originate from woman, but woman from God took a rib out of Adam side and 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.

She ought to have a symbol that ought to be something visible that demonstrates she's under authority is under what we could go through all this. What is the point here is the point person says is 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 will 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. When Jesus wants to do someone sends an angel. Angels means messengers the messenger service whose job it is to carry front haven't found but the Angels only ever found you contact if headship is operating properly. If headship is not operating properly. Then the angel will hold so if you are blocking prayer and being so late is legitimately rebelling against your house been your blocking.answering your prints you may be delighted.answering your plants because 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 charge to make sure that things are in alignment so that God is free to respond with his messenger service.

2011' or call one 800 832, 22, where resource team members are standing by ready to assist you all have that information for you again after part two of today's lesson is Tony Jewish father understood the importance of the temple. The church is the first one up in the morning… Went. I grew up in no without much like many of you father got the work sometimes of the time. Did get to 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 in to unload the boat as the stevedore longshoreman since the time he got saved.

I cannot remember one time him asking me, do you feel like going to church. I try to remember but I can remember one time when I got to church was a lot and allow my manager I'm sick or feel so bad I wasn't sick because 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 school 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 why he stable. That was inconceivable because a man of the kingdom was 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 want to give you about the real reason why many detergents are statesmen 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 slants because Adam transferred to her. Then he went passive owners is called the silence of God and that the devil be the wrapping.

She talked to him.

They all get together at each other and all hell breaks loose. Then God says this righteousness watches like this. But God said it. He says that Adam and John 73, because you listen to your wife in the mandibles. This is why absolutely she's a partner unless what you're listening to contradicts your wants, what you're hearing 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 you say because she has a head over you because you listen to far too many of us is meant 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 generation of 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 you need for mail hood is plumbing in his boyhood because a boy is responsible and dependent. She's not independently responsible, you don't to be able to provide for himself because he's just a boy. Now we will is a 30-year-old boy got a problem for 30-year-old boys building for your boy off, fragile boy, a 10-year-old boy asked. 15 you will be 30-year-old boy. Far too many off tied to boyhood. That's why I don't send a woman out to work but I stay home to provide laugh, boyhood, he says in chapter 5 he says it is horrible. A man does not provide enforcement. Anybody stays home should be far you and is manhood kingdom man is a person who exercises authority and responsibility on exercises authority naming these names, things in the P and eBay has the responsibility.

Dr. Evans will show how God can take our dry dead faith and fill it with life and vitality. Right now he's back with this closing illustration position on the football team is support.

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. 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. Others will be coming on his blindside that he cannot see he should do his best to avoid being tackled to avoid being thrown back for 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 full down the line the scrimmage. Now that it's gonna get a lot back but hey you, and where it will again go all because you all don't want to be back in the alternative, with Dr. Tony have brought you made possible by the generous contributions from listeners like
