YOU NEED TO READ THIS.
1 Cor 3:1 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?
Brothers, I can not address most Christians as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly. I literally give up sometimes as i listen to them speak.
Disciple Christian MC needs you, and me, to be spiritual men. I cannot emphasize this enough. Time on our faces before God. Time in the Word, considering and meditating what it says. Time in prayer. Time growing before God. Fasting and praying, listening to praise and worship music.
Men, im not looking for you to be inspired by me. I started this club so you could inspire me, and other men. God, the struggles that i have. Who am i to inspire anyone? I started this so people could help me through my dark times. I wonder sometimes at how few of us are truly spiritual. Are we praying daily for a blessing on our leaders? Are we praying for each other?
Spirituality isnt some high falutin talking and acting. Its SPENDING TIME WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD in meditation and prayer. You become like who you are around. Because we arent around the Spirit of God very much through fasting, prayer and worship, we DONT SOUND LIKE CHRISTIANS WHEN WE SPEAK. We sound like the world. We talk about our jobs, our families, our motorcycles.
Im so sorry to say that i see so little of the Holy Spirit in the church. So little true Spirituality. So little speech (from me included) that indicates men who are truly plugged into the Almighty Throne of Grace.
Our success isnt measured in how much this club grows. Our success isnt in being more spiritual than some other club is. Do we want to grow in numbers and across this country, or do we want to grow in the Spirit?
Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Sow to the Spirit. Read the Word. Pray on your face before Almighty God. Sing praise and worship music instead of the crap music of the enemy. Fast, live a life of fasting. Sow to the Spirit. For us to grow as men, this is necessary.
Even if you dont FEEL anything magical when you are reading your word, praying on your face, listening to praise and worship music, and fasting, DO IT ANYWAY.
