Inside every man is the heart of a warrior. There is a desire to rise up and fight for what is right and to protect all that is close to them. But it is the experiences of a man’s life that can shape how his warrior heart is lived out. If a man goes through pain or hurt, the warrior in him may become destructive, and he will wreak havoc on himself and those around him. On the other hand, the warrior heart can be repressed if a man is taught to follow the expectations of a society that requires men to follow the status quo and not step out of line or take any risks, and this can leave him feeling powerless and unfulfilled in life. But these outcomes are not what God made men for.
God made men to fight the good fight of the faith. The enemy of God seeks to steal the passion and drive of men, to kill their hopes of being able to fight for a worthy cause, and to destroy any chance of their life bringing about the changes in this world that they were born to achieve. But when the warrior heart of men is grounded in Jesus Christ as a son of God and co-heir to the Kingdom of God, his heart is fuelled with a love so strong that it cannot be contained. The man of God will stand up and live the most abundant and fulfilling life imaginable when their heart is set on their God-given calling to advance his Kingdom.
The Men’s Ministry of Kingdom Warriors is about awakening the warrior heart inside Christian men. It is my prayer that the words shared in the topics below will both challenge and encourage you to stand up, and fight the good fight you were born to win!
The five major focuses of the Kingdom Warrior: The Kingdom, The Armoury, The Proving Grounds, The Enemy, and Wounded Warriors.
In my fathers house there are many rooms…I go to prepare a place for you
We have a treasured and valuable place in God’s kingdom. Lessons in The Kingdom teach us that we belong in God’s house and that we are apart of his family.
Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the enemy
Lessons in The Armoury are aimed at encouraging and equipping you to live as a Christian; standing confidently in-spite of the challenges life may bring to you.
Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead
Does your faith change how you live everyday? The Proving Grounds are where your faith is put to the test. The lessons here are aimed at challenging you to reflect on your life and to assess if you need to make any changes.
The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy
Lessons about The Enemy will expose his tactics so that you can defend against them.
When you pass through waters, I will be with you; and through rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy one, your Saviour
Life will take its toll on you. You will get hurt, you will get discouraged. Lessons for Wounded Warriors aim to help you regain your strength and keep you moving forward.
