Hilltop Men’s Ministry
We will be starting a Hilltop Church of God Men’s Group soon! This will be a time for the men of the church to meet in fellowship, and to praise God. Being spiritual leaders, we could all use time to discuss life, and all the things that go along with it.
Why get involved?
- For Accountability
- For Building One Another Up
- For Prayer
- For Community
Having brothers who will hold us accountable when we fall short, is healthy and biblical. Sometimes, those on the outside of a situation have an ability to see things differently than we do during our moment of fault, and because of that, they can offer Godly advice to help us in those moments. Accountability requires the ability to see one’s fault, while taking a loving and compassionate approach to helping him to take steps to correct that fault.
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
For Building One Another Up
We all go through challenging times. We all need encouragement. When we have brothers to lean on and to help build us up and to grow, life is better. Together, we can become better men, husbands, fathers, sons and servants of The Lord. We can share our faith and our experiences to sharpen one another, and to help one another to be great and powerful disciples of Jesus.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Prayer isn’t something we just do at church, or before we go to bed. It’s how we communicate with God. We are blessed to have an open line of communication with The Lord, and can use it any time of the day, for any request, wherever we are. Prayer isn’t a formality of faith; it’s a must! We, as men, have a responsibility to have heartfelt prayer time, alone and together. This is part of both, the accountability and building up process!
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
We have many responsibilities as men of Christ. Those responsibilities start at home, and branch out to church, our workplace, and into every place we go. When we live the way Jesus wants us to live, it provides testimony of His goodness in our lives!
This broken world needs Jesus badly, right down to our own little community. We have opportunities as a ministry in the Christian faith, to reach the lost and broken. Whether it be inviting a co worker to men’s group, or staging a community event to share the gospel, or helping those in need, there’s no shortage along the way, of those in our community, who need to see God at work.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
There is not a set time or day for the Men’s Group yet, so your input would be appreciated. I know we all have different schedules, but we can surely work something out!
