What The Church Needs Most
Men! Real Men! After reading this over and over for the last ten minutes, I feel deeply troubled because I see what am I so far from being. No man will ever become the real man described in this quote unless he is compelled by the Spirit to pursue Christ as ruler over all! I am not that old and wise yet but with every passing day I realize (I mean in real, cold hard experience, not just in reading about it) how difficult and impossible living a holy life is. The harder I try the more profound are my failures. To think that any amount of human effort should get the credit for a God honoring life is in itself dishonoring to God. Through all the trials, difficulties, disappointments, failures, and certainly all of the successes...CHRIST ALONE is worthy of all the praise. God help us!
