2018 Men's Conference: Mighty Warriors
Mighty Warriors! Those two words bring up different images to our minds as men. We think of the men and women of our country who have fought in wars past to protect and defend our country. We think of the men and women of our country who currently serve in our military and how they defend us, our freedom and our country every day. We think of the athletes in our favorite sport and how they push their bodies to the limits in competition so they can win championships. We think of our favorite character from our favorite action movie. We think of the David and his incredible defeat of Goliath. We think of Samson and how he killed 1,000 men with the jawbone of a donkey. We think of Jesus Christ who conquered sin and death for us by His perfect life, perfect death and resurrection.
These are all examples of Mighty Warriors! It would be cool to be a Mighty Warrior. It would be awesome to be a Mighty Warrior. However, we rarely, if ever, think of ourselves as Mighty Warriors. Our Old Testament friend, Gideon, did not think of himself as a Mighty Warrior yet that is what God called him. The truth is, God sees you and me as Mighty Warriors by our faith in Christ Jesus.
The theme of our Men’s Conference this year is Mighty Warriors! God is going to teach and encourage us, through the example of Gideon, how we can live as Mighty Warriors today.
