COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Revisited the topic of Robert Murray McCheyne, 19th century preacher who graduated college at 14, led a congregation of over 1000 at age 23, was infamously a workaholic, and died at the age of 29 of cardiac arrest and exhaustion. Supposedly on his death bed he was quoted saying “God gave me a message to deliver and a horse to ride on. Alas, I have killed the horse and I can no longer deliver the message.” We’ve mentioned masculinity a lot this passed week in our Words. Biblical Masculinity is an interesting topic because the Bible rarely actually addresses masculinity directly, so often when we talk about being Godly men we get a mix of Scripture and culture, some of which is good but a lot is not. One of the cultural aspects of masculinity is work ethic; rather closer to being a workaholic. We as men tend to put the pressure to over work ourselves. When confronted by the Pharisees about eating on the Sabbath Jesus said that man wasn’t made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for man. We tend to hear “Jesus says it’s ok not to rest”, rather than hearing “The Sabbath (rest) was designed specifically for me, and is therefore beneficial”. Lets all be men who prioritize rest, so we can faithfully deliver the message we were given, rather than killing the horse we ride on.
