The Apostle Paul reminds us that this life is a battlefield and that we need a wartime mentality. The young Timothy was conscripted to faithfully and boldly share the Gospel to the church in Ephesus and in doing so leading others into the unknown, yet certain, dangers. Paul instructed this young man to lead by both command and example; his wartime philosophy was simple – 'Follow me.'
Yet, everywhere we turn, the world is begging us to follow it and tells us what it means to be a man. As men who desire to be faithful to the Gospel, we need to be constantly reminded of what it means to be a Christian man who has been entrusted with the Gospel.
134 men (high school on up) joined a one-day conference sponsored by Missio Dei Church on Saturday, April 2nd. The conference was called ‘Band of Brothers: Men Entrusted with The Gospel’ where we will be spent a whole day immersed in 2 Timothy 2 wrestling with what does it look like to “guard the good deposit entrusted to you.”
