Men of God today is celebrated as ‘International Men’s Day’, and I use this opportunity to encourage the men of the conference and the wider community to continue to stand with Christian dignity and integrity in the face of all the challenges life throws at us. Believe it or not, we have a responsibility to live lives that will inspire the next generation of men to rise to a higher standard.
So, let us humble ourselves and allow God to empower us to be the kind of servant leaders He has called us to be. Some of us will at times stumble or get discouraged, but we must stand together, strengthen each other and be our brothers’ keepers.
In closing, I point you to 1Timothy 4:12, ‘Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity’. Our homes, our churches, our communities, our world, are depending on us; but greater yet, God is depending on us.
