5 PAX made it out to Men’s Roundtable this morning… It was a time where we continued to define Manhood in Biblical terms, as well discuss what our Identity should be secure in. Today we looked at a wound we all suffer from: THE DEPRAVITY WOUND.

Definition of Authentic Manhood:
Reject Passivity
Accept Responsibility
Lead Courageously
Expect God’s Reward

The Depravity Wound Defined:
1.We are all fallen and cursed creatures at odds by nature, with out Creator.
2. Total Depravity requires a spiritual solution only God can provide.

To illustrate this point…use the idea that if we were comparing who is a “better” person, to another that is “less than”…. And to measure their goodness/holiness, it is measured in how far they can throw a rock. Let’s say the better person can throw a rock five times further then the less than person….From our perspective the better person is much more impressive and therefore better and more holy. Now the catch- God is in Alaska…and you are trying to measure your holiness to Him.
NOW the gap is still so vast between the better persons ability to throw a rock and reaching the God… from His perspective both the better person and less than person are still in dire need of His rescue, and someone to bridge the gap.

We can never do enough “good” to earn His favor…to earn Heaven… The only chance we have is that someone has come to close the gap. Jesus. His sacrifice and resurrection is the key. So the only act left for us is that of surrendering, and following. That’s it. Let’s get in community and talk about what that looks like.

Hope you can join us the week after Thanksgiving for our 7th Session: Redeemed Masculinity. I hope to see you there.

Praying for all my F3 Brothers- and what is being accomplished through this group.
