So let me ask you: Do words like powerful, passionate, successful, and joyful describe your Christian life? Are you living with purpose? Your purpose is the reason God put you here on earth. It's essential to discover your purpose, but you also need passion because it is the fire that feeds your purpose. Once you know the God-given purpose for your life and you are fired with a holy passion to accomplish it, there isn't anything the devil can throw at you that will stop you.
Our families, our churches, and the world need men of God. These are not just men who show up, but men who make strong, loving fathers, spiritual leaders, and teachers of future generations of men. With all the world's mixed-up messages about what men should do and be, this book from Pastor Jack Graham, filled with solid biblical counsel, is much-needed.
Pastor Graham highlights what it takes to be a man—specifically, to be a man of God. In his straightforward, warm, often humorous manner, he gives men guidance on relating to their wives and leading their families, being good stewards of their financial assets, striving for moral purity, and more. He challenges men to live with purpose and passion—to put Christ first and to live radically for Him.
