Watch "Wake Up The Mighty Men" and use this as a study guide on your own or with your small group.

 

From Moses to Elijah, the disciples to Paul, and even Jesus Himself, we see God delighting in the masculinity of men. He doesn’t ask them to sit around in choir robes singing “Kumbaya.” No, we see His hand working mightily through their strength, courage, and boisterous personalities. He never requires them to succumb to timidity, passivity or something they weren’t wired for. He celebrates their manhood.
