Tonight I’m starting something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. Tonight at 9 p.m. I’m having a men’s only bible study, for men and about men.
And where should men have a Bible study? And where do real men study the Bible? Only a manly place will work for men. If we’re going to learn to be MEN like the Bible teaches us to be, we can’t have meeting in a flower shop, fabric store or a Hobby Lobby. But a Bible study in a garage sounds like something men could do! So, tonight I have about 14 men from church and from the community who have committed to coming to this Bible study in my garage to learn how to be better men.
Very simply, Samson will teach us why strong men fail. And as a Christian man, a husband and as a dad I don’t want to fail.
We’re going to be studying a book called, “The Samson Syndrome.” The book will deal with many of the topics men struggle with today like lust, boundaries, ego, foolish risks, intimacy, etc! The book will cover Samson’s life and what we can learn the baddest boy in the Bible. The book is about a man in the Bible who was James Bond-like in his attitude and lifestyle. Samson, whose story is told in four chapters of the book of Judges, was young, strong, good-looking, cocky, courageous, and an incorrigible ladies man. He had a nose for trouble, a knack for hair-raising escapes, and more girlfriends than Radio City has Rockettes. If Samson was alive today he’d be a superstar athlete or an action-movie star. He’d be surrounded by popping flashbulbs and adorning groupies. But, very simply Samson will teach us why strong men fail. As a Christian man, a husband and as a dad I don’t want to fail.
I’m excited about this Bible study. The reason we’re starting at 9 p.m. is so those dad’s with small children can still help get their kids in bed and then come to the Bible study. If you’re from Childress and would like to come … feel free to drop by. Since we’re men, I’ll have a cooler full of cold beverages (cokes and water of course) and a few snacks that won’t include girly foods like crescents, quiche or raspberry tea! We should be through by 10 p.m. See you at the garage tonight!
