MICHAEL GRIMM's Word of the Week.. & Men's Ministries
January 8 2024


I hope and pray all is well with you and your family today.

“For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.” – Galatians 1:10

 Women, children, and the institution of the family itself are all crying out, “Where are all the good, Godly men in America?” The truth is that our culture is at open war with men today. Righteous masculinity is under direct attack, with those pushing a feminized and alternative gender agenda aggressively attempting to demolish the role of men, fathers, and their leadership roles in society.

God’s perfect design for the family included an integral, specific role for men: to be the leader of the home. This is no small responsibility; in fact, this is the most important calling a man can fulfill, leading and honoring his family – living a life of faith and service while modeling the behavior of Jesus. 

Men and women are not the same. By perfect, divine design, we each have different roles and different strengths that ultimately make up a beautiful complimentary relationship when implemented correctly according to God’s Word. A family that is surrendered to Christ is a powerful unit that cohesively operates to effectively bond the family and strengthen its members to go forth in wisdom, truth, love, and boldness to change the world for the Gospel.  

When men step into masculinity according to God’s Word, they are doing something countercultural, brave, and unquestionably significant.  

Holy commitment is the steadfast, immovable dedication to serve the Lord — even unto death. This is where men must act in obedience and courage. In Christ, we are both obligated and compelled to die to ourselves, to renounce our selfish motives and our feelings to make excuses for our behavior. We must also be willing to die for our wives and children while simultaneously living out the Gospel in an intentional way for our families.  

Real manhood is not about settling scores or winning meaningless battles. Real, biblical manhood begins with forgiveness. The power of forgiveness changes everything. When men forgive their absent or failed fathers, they begin the first step in making themselves the man God intended them to be. Transformation of the heart is sparked by compassion and intentional mercy.  

Correction in love, paired with encouragement, is the way we disciple others well. As we help one another in this way, we must be brave enough to gently rebuke those who are unwilling to grow. Without truth, our love efforts fall short. Our willingness to lovingly correct our brothers in their shortcomings and kindly encourage them in their strengths is how we build those whom we disciple into the men they are called to become.  

Through the active presence of godly male mentors, we will raise up the next generation of boys into men who are Pastors, Providers and Protectors. Through the love and care of mothers and wives, we will point our children to Christ and train them in wisdom. Through the steadfast work of believers, we will help lost souls find hope and healing in the arms of the Heavenly Father. Through the active and mission-focused Church, Jesus will redeem and transform the world, life by life.  

The time is now, good and faithful Brothers! Be bold and courageous, bearing the image of Christ and seeking His Kingdom first above all things. We are called upon in this critical hour. Together, we can break the cycle of fatherlessness and restore the family unit.  

Please listen to the song below and make this our prayer today, tomorrow and always.


Have a blessed and safe day and week.
