The administrators, pastors, workers and members of the conference extend a special welcome to Men’s Convention 2019, under the theme: ‘Men of Power – Where Are You?’ It is our prayer that the power of God will be rained down on you, to enable you to become even more powerful in the course of Christ.
Your guest speaker, Dr Minner Labrador, Jr., with his wealth of experience and the power of the Holy Spirit, is equipped to be an inspiration and blessing to you over this weekend.
As we draw near to the second coming of Jesus, men are being challenged in so many different ways. Prior to the 21st century, men’s and women’s roles were fairly defined. A man’s role included functions such as protector, leader and teacher. Today, the line between male’s and female’s roles is becoming more blurred because women have become equal players with career opportunities; able to carry out the same functions as men. Today men have fewer and fewer role models of what it means to be a man. We learn by observing the lives of others around us. We need to see the lives of real people lived out to help us figure out how to live our lives.
Men, your roles have not changed. Men are still expected to provide for and protect their families. As the priest of the home, you are still in charge of your family’s destiny and expected to participate in society in a dominant role guiding your offspring to the most successful outcomes possible.
The pace of change and the advancement of technology drives us to new ways of thinking, new ways of doing things. Change is all around us, but we have an ever-present constant; that is, the sure word of God. Not only does God call men into a specific role, but he gives him the power to live it. In John1:12 He says: ‘But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name’.
The signs all around are telling us that Jesus’ coming is near, even at the door. Men, the power of God is available to you. Just claim it today
