The first three things that God gave man was:
- a name (Gen 2:20)
- a job (Gen 2:19)
- and a woman (Gen 2:22)
When you listen to two guys introducing themselves to one another for the first time, the first question is, “What’s your name?” The next question is “What do you do?” and, at some point you’re going to learn if they’re married or if they have a girlfriend.
This is how men have been wired by their Creator. Your Men’s Ministry has to speak directly into these three areas. Men want to know how their relationship with Christ can increase their significance, their value and their appeal. If your content doesn’t translate to something that can be processed as a practical and effective way to better themselves in those three areas, your program is acknowledged as a noble exercise rather than a crucial foundation.
Muscular Christianity earns the right to be heard in the context of a fitness program that is as challenging as it is credible. And because it establishes discipleship as its philosophical starting point, participants are able to appreciate the True Muscle represented by a consistent prayer life and diligent Bible study. The end result is a man that is spiritually ripped, physically fit and fully equipped.
