But yes, my friend you do. Something or someone is sitting on your throne - right now. Maybe it’s your career, family or football fantasy team. Maybe it’s your pride, or ego or unforgiveness in your heart. But make no mistake, there is someone
sitting on your throne.
Have you ever stopped to consider what this something might be? Have you ever taken the time to really examine your thoughts and actions and asked yourself what, or who am I doing this for?
The Bible says in Romans 8:6:16-19 - Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey -- whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?...
So I ask you again, who sits on your throne?
The world is filled with some bad things and at times we get our hands dirty and we make mistakes and have regrets. If you listen to popular culture, then this is completely acceptable behavior and is in fact encouraged. The result - Men are left hollow feeling and empty. Perhaps you go to church, but feel no passion for the things of God, maybe you don’t know God at all but something inside calls you, beckons you to Him.
The Pathfinders Men’s Ministry at Freedom Bible Church is dedicated to helping men on their journey. We are not in to high-minded, philosophical discussions that leave your head full but your heart not filled. We are not macho, Rambo wannabees that pound our chest and breathe through our mouths. But make no mistake -we are Warriors and we are servants.
And we are recruiting.
Don’t wait until “you get it all together”, because if were honest with each other that’s just an excuse to not engage and to not reach out. There is no safety in solitude, only a sense of being under-powered and overwhelmed. We invite you to come be a part of Pathfinders. You will find real men here. Men who struggle with the things that life lays on us, but also men who through Christ and the brotherhood find victory. We encourage and support one another as we seek God’s direction and wisdom for our lives.
Here’s the good news and the rest of the passage from Romans 6:16-19 – “But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were committed. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to every-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness and holiness.” (NIV)
