Men’s Relationship with God

Romans 12:1-2 (NIV)

Living Sacrifices:

  1. Therefore, I urge you, brother, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.
  2. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is -his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Our goal as the MRG Committee is to:

  • Change the way we look at God.
  • Change the way we look at ourselves.
  • And to change the way we look at each other.

The wonderful thing for us as Christians is that we know, believe and trust that our Lord and Savior has all the answers — during these “in-between times,” as in all times. 

All of His answers are fact-based and beautifully written in one Book. And while the situation we currently find ourselves in is a very fluid one — witness the “breaking news” we seem to receive every minute of the day and night — we know that our Lord and Savior is constant. He is always. He does not change. He has been, is and will forever be the same. We know we can always turn to Him — our Father, our God, our Savior and His Holy Spirit — for stability, constancy, and fact-based information. 

During the “in-between times” — as in all times — we can access Him 24/7. His business never closes. We never have to stand in line. And we don’t ever have to worry that we’ll get His voicemail or will be put on hold. He always listens. He always answers. And HIS ANSWER is ALWAYS for HIS greater glory! Praise God!  

As Christian Married Couples, we have probably also heard some negative assumptions and dire predictions about how things may be quite different for us in the post-COVID-19 world. Below are some Myths we have heard and our recommended MythBusters and References.

Myth 1: Divorce Lawyers anticipate a rise in divorces during/post COVID-19.

MythBuster 1: As Christian Married Couples, we will not buy-in to the Divorce Lawyers who, with all due respect, would make this very self-serving prediction. We each made a vow to God, our spouse, family and friends. We each will continue to live our vow, in good times and in bad, come what may. While we recognize that divorce is real and that we are not perfect, spending more time together instead of apart is the ideal state for a married couple. Does “absence make the heart grow fonder?” Or does absence make the heart wander? The scripture below reminds us that if we live by the word of God there would be no reason for divorce.

Biblical Reference: Matthew 19:8 “He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives; but from the beginning it was not so.”

Musical Reference: Jesus can work it out – Dr. Charles Hayes & Cosmopolitan Choir 

Myth 2:  Domestic violence and/or abuse cases will increase during/post COVID-19.

Myth Buster 2:  We commit from this day forth that — even on our very worst day — we will not violate and/or abuse our spouse. As Christians, we commit that our spouse will not need to reach out to SafeNet, to any other protection services facility or to family, friends or colleagues for protection and/or shelter. We simply will not be abusive, disrespectful, mistreat or be mean to our spouse, children and family.  

Biblical Reference:  Ephesians 5:21-25, 28-29 “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husband, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject until Christ, so let the wives be to their own husband in everything. Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it; 

28 – 29 – so ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church.”

Musical Reference:  You are the sunshine of my Life – Stevie Wonder

Myth 3:  We are all currently “stuck” in our homes.

Myth Buster 3:  We are blessed to have a home and a family to enjoy. Many in this world do not enjoy this same privilege. This “in-between time” is our opportunity to step off the “rollercoaster of life.” Put this time to good use. We will never get it back. Here are a few good ideas: have a leisurely breakfast with your spouse; spend more time reading and studying your Bible — individually or together; spend more time with God; get some rest. If your children are old enough to look after themselves for a while, let them know that Mommy and Daddy are setting aside some uninterrupted time to spend with each other during a specific hour(s). Hold hands; touch; make a meal together. Try something that you may not “have time” to do ordinarily.  Talk and listen. Ask your spouse how he/she is doing, really doing? And listen to what he/she means as well as what he/she says. Think about what you might do to make him/her smile — and do it! Make plans for your future together or set some meaningful new norms for your relationship. Plan to start a new family tradition — something the family can all do together. Remember, the best things in life really are the simple, inexpensive things — Saturday morning breakfasts together; family walks at the peninsula or along the Bayfront on Sunday afternoons after dinner/church, etc. These are special memories that last a lifetime. 

Biblical Reference:  Proverbs 10:22 “the blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Musical Reference: Thank you Lord for all that you have done – Walter Hawkins & The Love Center Choir

Myth 4:  Post COVID-19, jobs will not be available and you will not be able to support your family.

Myth Buster 4:  We know a Man from Galilee… 

Biblical Reference:​Matthew 6:33  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Musical Reference:  Jesus Will – Anita Wilson

Myth 5: Being afraid for your marriage and/or your own and your spouse’s lives are normal reactions “under these circumstances.”

Myth Buster 5:  Fear can make us vulnerable and can take over our lives. It can cause panic. But fear stems from the amygdala in our brains, and the frontal lobe of the brain can control it. Also, remember that some have used the acronym F.E.A.R. to remind themselves that fear is False Evidence/Expectations Appearing Real. As Christians, there is nothing more real to us than our absolute trust and hope in the Lord. We know that His will is always done. And we know that His will is always love, beyond our understanding and beyond all reckoning. Jesus knows us. He understands the power that fear can have over us. And He tells us to be not afraid — to put our trust in Him.         

Biblical Reference:  2 Timothy 1:7 “ For God has not given us the spirit of fear but  of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Musical Reference:  Hello Fear – Kirk Franklin
