The latest issue of our quarterly devotional magazine tackles the deep issues around hurting men. National Field Director, Jeff Kisiah, writes in his article Broken Mirrors about the necessity of reaching men in this state. Man in the Mirror Field Staff from across the nation tell their stories of men they have worked with over the years, and new staff member Pete Alwinson discusses the importance of the fatherhood of God in an excerpt from his book Like Father Like Son.
"If I hear one more sermon about how there's nothing I can do to earn my salvation..." Have you heard this before? Maybe thought it yourself? While we can all use that reminder, we often stop thinking about God's grace having much impact in our lives past our justification in God's eyes. Once we're redeemed, we struggle and strive to grow closer to Christ, live out the fruits of the Spirit and live a sanctified life. Jesus promised "another counselor" to come and help us as we seek to become more Godly. Grace extends beyond salvation. Don't escape the cultural rat race just to get caught up in the spiritual rat race. Join Man in the Mirror VP Brett Clemmer as he opens the Scriptures to encourage us to get off the spiritual treadmill and enjoy God's power and grace and the freedom He brings.
The Big Idea: I am free! I can quit the spiritual rat race and trust the Holy Spirit to make me more like Christ.
