I am currently reading Kingdom Man by Tony Evans. The book is based on the Biblical alignment of true manhood as God designed it. It empowers men to live like Christ.
So far, its been a really good book. One that's extremely difficult to put down once I start. I'll definitely be posting more about it, but I would like to share a few lines from the book that I have highlighted.
- God doesn't always call the equipped, He always equips the called.
- Being a kingdom man involves exercising authority and responsibility along with wisdom and compassion. A kingdom man intentionally aligns his life, choices, thoughts, and actions under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
- Biblical manhood is when a man not only understands and embraces, but also fully lives out, the principles and truths in God's Word.
- A kingdom man serves in a kingdom. God is the King. Christ is the head, the leader. He has asked us to stand fast. He has asked us to give our undivided allegiance to Christ's command through His headship over our lives, regardless of the cost. It is our responsibility as men to see to it that those under our care-those who depend on us and those within our realm of influence- have every opportunity possible for protection, provision, and safety. If we don't give that to them, not only will they end up suffering, but others will suffer, too.
- Being a kingdom man is about more than just being a great athlete, a great businessman, a successful community leader, or a wealthy individual. Being a kingdom man invloves being the hero who aligns himself under the headship and authority of Jesus Christ so he can fully access the power and authority of Jesus Christ to positively influence and impact everything and everyone within his realm.
There will be more to come about this book as I read, take notes, and live it out.
On a second note, shout out to my brother William "Young Noah" Bohannon on the upcoming release of his music video and album coming out next year. You can read more about it here.
On a third note, I have been listening to "Hallelujah Anyhow" by gospel music legend Thomas Whitfield all week. I hope it encourages you like, it does me. Listen here.
On a fourth note, my mentor and brother Kevin "KC" Conley posted a new instructional video on YouTube for beginning and advanced musicians. Watch it here.
Lastly, my church music department is gearing up for our Annual Thanksgiving Musical. You are most welcome to worship the LORD with us. It's this Sunday at Community Fellowship Church in Dalton, GA at 3:00 PM.
